  1. May we never forget these and those who gave their all. I worked next to a large veterans hospital and at the ceremony to honor them every year they do a gun salute. Some of the patients would hide under the chairs when the guns were fired. It was sad and moving. Many had just returned from war.

  2. These pictures are beautiful. Major Arnold’s brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for posting. And Happy Veterans Day to my hubby and all our brave men and women.
