Lovely, clam. Thanks - from the daughter, the sister, and the sister-in-law of vets.
You're both welcome! I am also the daughter, sister, daughter-in-law and sister-in-law of vets!
Hey, majkia, you're a former Nutmegger?
I am a former Nutmegger! True! Joined the Air Force there too.
And lived not that far from you. I'm from Windsor Locks.
We have a group of elderly men who come to the cafe at my work every day to have coffee and talk. At least a few are veterans, and one of our baristas bought them their drinks today (we all pitched in, but it was her idea). So sweet.
#12 - Wow! Very cool, indeed!
#11 - That is a heartwarming story, goddessladyj.
#5 I'm originally from Springfield,Ma.I was born at the old Fort Devens,Ma but my Dad was Air Force all the way.He was attached to Westover Air force Base in Chicopee,Ma.Small world indeed.
Canada's fallen soldiers are usually taken west on a highway north of Lake Ontario (CFB Trenton to Toronto). Residents along the way take to overpasses to salute each cortege--very touching to witness. Now highway 401 has signs identifying it as "Highway of Heroes". Hopefully far fewer to salute these days...
Thinking of them this Veterans / Remembrance / Armistice Day:
