We finally got our flagpole up just in time for Veteran's day. In our last house in Michigan we just had the house bracket type, but many years ago, when we lived in Redford, we had one and were proud to fly the flag.
I've often said that I don't believe in a lot
of holidays. The only legitimate legal holidays - other than Christmas,
Thanksgiving, New Year's and Easter - are Memorial day, in which we
remember those who have passed who served; Independence Day, for obvious
reasons; Veteran's Day, in which we remember all the Veteran's, those
living and those who served to protect our country.;
Then there are my nephew's Steve and Patrick, both who served their country. Not to be forgotten also are Phil and Kevin.
I am grateful that all served.
