    Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington, VAYou can find them in museums honoring their fallen comrades or right behind you in line while shopping. They’re everywhere and they’ve fought for you. Yes, YOU! They’re America’s veterans and we honor them November 11th with a national holiday.

    In Virginia there are events, free tours and big lodging discounts for veterans. Virginia loves vets and here’s some of what’s planned in their honor.

      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)
