The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, 100 years ago

One hundred years ago today on the 11th hour, WW I ended.  An Artillery piece from the 11th Field Artillery Regiment, named Calamity Jane, fired the last shot of the war at that time.  The Allies and Germany signed the armistice ending the war to end all wars. As we know from history that dream was short lived.  Today was originally known as Armistice Day, what we in the US now call Veterans Day.  

 

I know we have quite a number of Veterans and retired military on here, and many who have family or friends that served.  To all of you, Thank You for you Service.  No matter the challenges our country has had or currently face, the one constant are the men and women who were either chosen or volunteered to serve our country.  Their bravery and commitment to the freedom and safety of our country has always been a source of pride.  To our Viet Nam Vets, our one shame is that you were treated so poorly, a group doing their duty, with no true welcome home from their country.   God bless you all and know you are always in our thoughts and prayers.

Tough day today. Many thanks for my service, and I appreciate them, but my time was nothing when compared to those who gave all. I watched the flag being hung across the cayon above North Ogden to honor their Mayor, who was killed in Afghanistan recently. If that doesn't tug at your heart, nothing ever will. My little 20+ years was a walk in the park. Too many of my friends and family are gone now. That their service is recognized is what's important. May all of those who gave their full measure RIP and thank you.
