Thank you for remembering Veterans Day; many have served and lost their lives (literally or through loss accrued while on Active Duty). It is important to stop and reflect upon this day, regardless of political affiliation or personal belief!

Terry Kelly has captured in in words and song the great injustice that has been done to Veterans since we withdrew from South Vietnam. The political foment of that time failed to discriminate between the military personnel who were doing their duty, and the politics of foreign wars.

Just listening to this song, and the equally poignant songs of Eric Bogle (And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda) and John Schuman (I was on 19- brings tears to my eyes.

THIS is the only response I can offer up at this time. I lost an uncle I never met, on the beaches of Normandy. (D-Day).......

In Flanders fields the poppies grow,
between the crosses, row on row;
That mark our place.
And in the sky, the lark, still
bravely singing flys,scarest heard
amidst the guns below.
We are the dead; short days ago,
we lived,saw dawn, felt sunsets glow.
And now we lie, in Flanders
Take up our quarrel, with the foe,
to thee with failing arms we throw
the torch!!
Be yours to hold it high, if ye
break faith with us who've died
we shall not sleep, tho' poppies
blow in Flanders Fields.
In Flanders Fields the poppies
grow, between the crosses,
row on row. That mark our place.
And in the sky; the lark; still
bravely singing flys.
Scarce heard amidst the guns, below.
