"Happy" Veterans' Day?
How about "Thank You, Veterans, Day"?
Personally I'm not too happy that we lost millions of brave men and women who put themselves in harms way and who sacrificed, along with their families, so that we didn't have to. (Yea, I know, I shouldn't have ended that sentence with a preposition.)
My father was a veteran. My father-in-law was a veteran. I have two cousins who are veterans.
And I'd like to personally thank them and all the rest of the veterans.
Today the President will be in NYC to officially re-open the Intrepid, which recently returned to her berth at Pier 86. They've refurbished her, added some airplanes and helicopters to her collection, and basically spiffed her up to her former glory.
I watched her come home on October 2; I'd also watched her leave for her overhaul a couple of years ago. It was a stirring sight - I was teary-eyed and proud.
