    Good evening, Happy Veterans Day!!

    I simply planned to wish America’s twenty-five million veterans a happy Veteran’s Day. And lets me quote Veterans Day quote that I actually really like:

    “Soldiers generally win battles; generals get credit for them .. .. ** Napoleon Bonaparte”… .

    In case that you want related information on Veteran’s Day festivities, discounts, its own History, movies plus even more, Military.com have a wonderful on-line repository with everything to help you..

    Another Veterans’ Day idea: All National Park Service sites, in Virginia and elsewhere, are open free to the public November 11 in honor of all our veterans. Consider a hike with a grandchild or child in one of our national treasures and talk with them about the meaning of this holiday.

    See Nov. 2 post of blog (URL above) for links to NPS info and to book/puzzle tie-ins for children before/after their park visits.

    Thanks from Grammi (a vet daughter/wife/mother)
