Veterans Day & USMC Birthday

Veterans Day is celebrated here today to honor the service of all U.S. military veterans. Many towns, including our current home, Nashua, NH will host a parade and other commemorative events. Many restaurants and service facilities nationwide are providing food and other discounts to current and retired military personnel.

But, more importantly, on this day, and always, we  say Thanks to those who have served in all branches of service, including Pat/Grenville who was in the U.S. Navy. 

We keep those military men and women serving in the U.S. and in foreign lands in our thoughts and prayers. These are dangerous times worldwide for everyone.

And, we also extend belated Happy Birthday wishes to the U.S. Marine Corp (USMC) which celebrated its 241th birthday yesterday, November 10. 

The USMC was established in 1775 when the Second Continental Congress established the Continental Marines.
Since 1925, the USMC birthday has been celebrated with a traditional ball and cake-cutting ceremony.

Enjoy your weekend, Everyone
Take time to thank a military veteran for his/her service. 
They will appreciate it.
