On Friday, our county senior citizen center will be hosting a breakfast for all veterans. We will also dedicate a newly donated POW flag in the ceremonies, and if all goes as planned, it will be first raised by a former POW.

Additionally, they are "building" a remembrance quilt to be displayed there once it is done. They are using 6 inch by 6 inch squares of white material, putting the service branch, medals, rank, name, and conflict (among others) in a graphic display on each square.

I thought as a Navy vet, . . . it was really pretty neat, . . . there could be WW1 names next to an Afghany vet, . . . nurses next to Iwo marines, . . . who knows how it will play out. All materials were donated, . . . labor was offered, . . . and a local quilting guild will put it together.

The memories it will represent will be astounding once it is done.

May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!
