Yesterday, a young 25yo US Army Iraq War Veteran took the time to visit several Kindergarten classes in an elementary school in Charlotte. He was there to present and define Veterans Day to 5 year old children. To thank him for his time today and his commitment to our freedom they all signed a framed image of our flag. I was proud and honored to share my image as a small token back to him...
for picking up the watch and protecting us all for another day.

Veterans Day honors ALL American veterans, both living and dead. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for dedicated and loyal service to their country. November 11 of each year is the day that we ensure veterans know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made in the lives to keep our country free.
In 1947, Raymond Weeks, of Birmingham Ala., organized a "Veterans Day" parade on November 11th to honor all of America's veterans for their loyal and dedicated service. Shortly thereafter, Congressman Edward H. Rees (Kansas) introduced legislation to change the name of Armistice Day to Veterans Day in order to honor all veterans who have served the United States in all wars.
WE SERVED PROUDLY.

I built a picnic table last week. After assembly I stained it "canyon brown" and sealed it up tight with a god deck sealer. We've had a good bit of rain this past week and I've loved seeing the new table out back. It is beading water like a champ. Yay, that is protecting the wood and will add years to the life of the table. But outside of all that good stuff, it's just really cool to see the water all beaded up.
