What a great tribute for Veterans Day.  In four hours your reblogs are already pegged.  Think I'll add another one.  I couldn't do anything as nice as this to honor our Veterans.

Great post and very true.

we all owe such a debt of gratitude to the vets, our current armed forces, and their families.


Posted by Andy Brown, Best Real Estate Training in Florida (Climer School of Real Estate) over 8 years ago

A lovely tribute to our Veterans. I wore appropriate colors and jewelry today and made it a point to ask those I met if they were Vets; if so, I thanked. Sure put a few smiles on folks' faces in the supermarket - ones they had earned!

Posted by Irene Kennedy Realtor® in Northwestern NJ (Weichert) over 8 years ago


This is a wordless post that truly needs no words. It is tasteful, beautiful and a totally appropriate tribute to our service men and women on this day.

Veterans Day 2010 Arlington Cemetery

Thanks to everyone for your comments.  Remember everyday is Veterans Day and  you can give not only your contribution to organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project or Fisher House but you can volunteer to help a family in need.  The holiday season is the toughest time for families with deployed loved ones or those who are still recovering from their injuries.  Lend a help hand if you can.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) over 8 years ago

Cindy: What a great video remembrance of those who have given everything in service of our country. And thanks for the links.

Cindy, I know you and your family have paid the ultimate sacrifice. God bless you and thanks for the tribute. Cal

Cindy - awesome. I got a call from a veteran today, my first VA loan deal, and was so happy to be able to be the person chosen to help him find his family a home. This was a moving, touching, and AWESOME compilation. Kudos to you!

Beautiful and touching. I hope all of our fellow Americans take a moment to think about our veterans and then to thank them for their service. Thank you for sharing this video.

That is wonderful. What a perfect post for the day. Very well done.

Many thanks for your comments and your support of our troops.  There is no doubt I wear my heart on my sleeve when it comes to our military families.   I hope your support, like mine goes deeper than just one or two days of the year.  If you live near a military installation check with the USO about upcoming Christmas events.  Support Blue Star Families and you can read hundreds of stories of young widows struggling to regain equilabrium in their lives after the loss of a loved one at the American Widow Project. 

Thanks again.

Cindy, I just can't stop the tears. That was so moving and I know that you have struggled with your own loss, too. This was a beautiful thing that you put together. Thank you.
