Veterans Day

Don't forget to set aside some time to attend a Veterans Ceremony tomorrow. 

God bless every Veteran out there, especially my brothers. 

"That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole of the law. The rest is commentary."

Rabbi Hillel (c20 BCE)

    Agree. Have plenty of family members that are veterans. Most are long gone and one still overseas buried in the Philippines. To all that served my hat is off to you! Many thanks for keeping us safe!

    Today happens to be the 245th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. I believe they started before this country was even official.

    I agree ferris! Thanks you to those that have lost their lives, those that served and those that still do.

    A LITANY FROM THE BOOK OF WORSHIP FOR UNITED STATES FORCES (1974), NO. 625

    Leader: Let us give thanks to God for the land of our birth with all its chartered liberties. For all the wonder of our country's story:
    People: We give you thanks, O God.
    Leader: For leaders in nation and state, and for those who in days past and in these present times have labored for the commonwealth:
    People: We give you thanks, O God.
    Leader: For those who in all times and places have been true and brave, and in the worlds common ways have lived upright lives and ministered to their fellows:
    People: We give you thanks, O God.
    Leader: For those who served their country in its hour of need, and especially for those who gave even their lives in that service:
    People: We give you thanks, O God.
    Leader: O almighty God and most merciful Father, as we remember these your servants, remembering with gratitude their courage and strength, we hold before you those who mourn them. Look upon your bereaved servants with your mercy. As this day brings them memories of those they have lost awhile, may it also bring your consolation and the assurance that their loved ones are alive now and forever in your living presence.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you
