We honor and thank our veterans ~ and current troops ~ for their service to America.

We have all been voting for the ambulance project on the Pepsi site. Each day you can vote for 10 different projects. There are many involving veterans.

Please consider casting a vote for this one (just search on Christmas for Heroes) ~ it is in the 'top ten' in the $5,000 category:

Send christmas care packages overseas to deployed troops this year.

But fame is theirs - and future days
On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise;
Shall tell - when cold neglect is dead -
"These for their country fought and bled."

This plaque is right on the St. Clair River, downtown Marine City in the Holy Cross Church parking lot. I thought it fitting to post this on this date. These guys deserve credit and honor too!

Good pics. Happy Veterans Day to those who've kept, and are keeping, Old Glory waving. Thank you.

Alex & Jbuck, Thanks for the well wishes, we are looking forward to our trip. Marty has the Scott's lol.

Special Thanks to my 92 year old uncle, Uncle Rudy Aittama from Bootjack/Livonia, wounded in the Battle of the Bulge and prisioner of war. Thanks for your service! I enjoy listening to your stories any time!

Uncle Chuck,

You Uncle Rudy is a good friend of my Dad's. They share a L'Anse
Sentinel and are both members of the same church and the Finnish

UC ~

My Dad was also in the Battle of the Bulge and was wounded but never came off the line. The cold probably stopped the bleeding. Unlike many of his buddies from basic he escaped being captured and went on to be wounded in February '45 at a town called Duren. That was his 'ticket home'.

Wish he was still here to tell the stories of his service. He never got to the point of wanting to talk about it before he left us.

Thanks again veterans ~ we appreciate your service and sacrifices for us all.
