Veteran's Day

I can't let this day go by without a special word of thanks to all the men and women who have fought the wars that have helped keep this country free and safe. War is never good and people who fight them know that more than anyone, but sometimes it's necessary - and the people who step up to do their part are truly heroes.

But there is someone else I always think of on Veteran's Day and that is my Aunt Florence. She died a few years ago, but today would have been her 98th birthday. See last year's post to find out how 8 year old Florence felt when the Armistice was signed on her birthday!
