Today we honor the men and women who have fought for our freedoms and those still presently serving to keep our country free. Veterans Day marks the anniversary of the end of World War I. In other parts of the world this day is called Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, both of which also mark the end of WWI. On this date in 1918, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the Armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect, ending "the war to end all wars".

Please remember to thank a Veteran today especially, but also when you see them any day of the year. It is because of their service to our country, that we live here in America with the freedoms we do. Show your pride and thanks by flying your flag proudly, as in this first photo here today, from Donna MacIntosh.

The flag represents our American colors and the second photo from Kathy Archambeau represents our Keweenaw color, which even though the autumn leaves have all but disappeared, there are still those that hang tight to branches, showing their strength and tenacity. Kind of like our Veterans and their willingness to serve and sacrifice because of their love of our country.
We here at Pasty Central salute all of our Veterans and thank you with our utmost respect.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." - John F. Kennedy

Great pix, and "Thanks" to those who protect our freedom.
May we all live up to their efforts and sacrifice.

To all who have served and are serving, we give our thanks.

Love both of these pictures! They are so fitting
for this day of giving thanks to our veterans. And
thank you also to their families. It's a huge
sacrifice on their parts to have to watch their
loved ones leave them to serve their country.
Thank you so much to all of you. Without you, our
country wouldn't be the great country that it is!!

Nothing more impressive than our country's flag and our men and women in uniform keeping our freedom! Thank You All Veteran's for your service! God Bless America!

Janie, you said that so beautifully, all I can say is AMEN!

"You're My Hero

"Without you this country wouldn’t be the same;
You fight and you battle
For our common name.
Your level of courage is oh so rare
You’re dedicated and faithful;
You’re always there.
You’re my hero,
My favorite soldier,
And I love you.
Come home soon!"
(Author unknown but not forgotten).
