Happy Veteran's Day (Yesterday)

I seem to be a day late and a couple dollars short these days, but I would like to take a moment to thank all the veterans who have served our country. Their service to our country is priceless and I hope our new president-elect will make the right choice for new head of the Veteran's Administration (Tammy Duckworth, hint hint) and make certain vets of all eras receive the care they need and deserve.

Below is a list of those vets I personally know or have known:

My Dad--Lloyd Pitts
My Grandad--Henry Adams
My Uncle--Charles Collings
My friends--Tammie, Corey, James, Daniel and Sean
My Great Uncles--Bob Pitts, Fred Wooten, Biston Wooten
My cousin--Dale Wheeler
Becci's Husband--John Hendrix

Thanks you guys, and gal!

And last but not least, you do have an opportunity to adopt a vet. Military Working Dogs are found permanent homes once they retire from active service. To find out how to adopt a four-legged American hero, go to this site.
