Shortly after moving back to Oklahoma, I dropped by hubby’s work to take him to lunch. While we were in the parking lot, we noticed a very unusual pickup truck. Curiosity got the best of us both
of course, and we approached the man in the vehicle. He quickly got out, sharpie marker in hand, and said, “Please add your veteran’s names to my truck.” I watched while hubby wrote the names of our loved ones. For a few moments, in that store parking lot, it was sacred ground. Just as sacred as those we honor today. Join me today, on this Veteran’s Day, in saying thank you to our veterans! May we never forget their dedication and many sacrifices for us, so that we can enjoy our daily freedoms. Please add the names of your veteran friends and family to the comment area.
O say can you see by the dawn’s early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
