Boom-tug, Cowichan Bay. This old boat is often a subject for the photographer. It is truly a veteran of the logging industry and harbour work. It always captures my interest and is worthy of another photo.

For all who served our Country.

Listening to: Tell My Father: From "The Civil War: An American Musical"

  

Tell my father that his son

Didn't run, or surrender

That I bore his name with pride

As I tried to remember

You are judged by what you do

While passing through

As I rest 'neath fields of green

Let him lean on your shoulder

Tell him how I spent my youth

So the truth could grow older

Tell my father when you can

I was a man

Tell him we will meet again

Where the angels learn to fly

Tell him we will meet as men

For with honor did I die

Tell him how I wore the Blue

Proud and true through the fire

Tell my father so he'll know

I love him so

Tell him how we wore the blue

Proud and true like he taught us

Tell my father not to cry

Then say goodbye

 

There is an interesting story on the finding of this song... My wife and I went to a concert Friday evening of a men's choir that two people from my church are in. They sang this song and it immediately hit me. Those of you that really know me know what a soft heart I have and of course I was craying like crazy while listing to this... I knew I had to find this music... and post an image that matched it.. And of course my wife reminded me that Veterans Day was coming up... ;-DDD

Because of You, Unknown Soldier

 

By Courtney Tanabe

 

Because of you, I am here

Because of you, I am able to live freely

 

Yet I do not know you

And I have not done anything for you

 

But there you stand, ready to fight

And there you are prepared to die

For me

 

You've fought before

And you'll fight again

For someone you don't know

 

So thank you Unknown Soldier

Fighting for me

 

I'm here because of you

And I owe my future to you

Happy Veterans Day!

 

Also this is kinda a preview of a upcoming custom:D!

Hi,

When we were traveling through Idaho and heard this Veterans Cemetery was not far from where we had the RV parked, we made a point to go and pay our respects. The cemetery was way out of town on a long dirt road and the peaceful feeling there was overwhelming. God bless our fallen soldiers. Sadly in my lifetime I am witnessing folks forgetting, or just not caring, that these men and women are the reason we have the life we live today although many of our rights and liberties are fading away due to a government that is turning further and further from our Constitution. I'm praying we survive the current administration's policies until 2012. HOPE-fully we'll see a real CHANGE this time.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jim

Veterans Day is a federal holiday that is celebrated on Nov. 11 each year. Veterans Day is for all those who have served in the armed forces.

Thank you Veterans for your service and sacrifice.

My mom's father was in the Navy and my dad's father was an MP. I made these two figures in honor of my grandfathers.

The top of the piano and the keyboard cover open and slam shut as if touched by the hand of a ghost.

 

The room doesn't do anything it's beautiful without even trying.

Amtrak 42, the Veterans unit, leads Amtrak number 4 east through Norborne, Mo. on the BNSF Marceline Sub.on a very frigid and bitter cold morning. It was nice to finally catch this one moving and even better on point.

Happy Veterans day to everyone, please remember why we have the freedom to live the way we do. It is not because of the polticians, it is because men and women have been proud to serve our country and defend our right to freedom.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a national memorial in Washington, D.C. It honors U.S. service members of the U.S. armed forces who fought in the Vietnam War, service members who died in service in Vietnam/South East Asia, and those service members who were unaccounted for (Missing In Action) during the War, 58,274 names. Using DOF, I wanted to make the wall look as if it was endless, the way I felt photographing it.

Veterans Thank You for your service and enjoy your day. God Bless America.

It was a beautiful Veteran’s Day even though it was foggy at times near the water!

Tribute to Veterans on this 2013 Veterans Day, some were drafted, some volunteers, for some it was just yesterday and others many years but they all deserve our respect and admiration!

 

Gotta Watch This! ~ Missed You So Much!

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday honoring armed service veterans living or dead. This year in the USA it is marked on Monday November 11th. This holiday came from the Armistice that went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11 month ending WW1. Where ever you live give thanks to those men and women who served their countries.

Monday is Memorial day here in the USA. A day to remember our military members and what they have done for us in the past and the present. I don't have a problem with that sense I'm ex Navy.

Hope everyone has a great week

May 9 - Victory Day. At Victory Park I took a few spontaneous portraits of our veterans.

A Salute to America's Veterans. Thanks for the look and have a Great Week.

Taken one early misty morning at a small pond off Windam Hill Road, pretty much off any "beaten path." I hadn't realized that I took this photograph on my Father's 87th birthday until just this moment. Had tucked it away, saving it specifically for Veteran's Day.

My Father was an Army Paratrooper during World War II, spending most of his time overseas in Europe behind enemy lines. He is still living and well of health.

My husband was in the Marine Corps, also during World War II in the Pacific theater. He died in 1995 and received full military honors at his funeral service, including the 21 gun salute and a lone bugler playing Taps.

My Grandfather, originally from Sweden, lost a lung at 18 years of age from mustard gas poisoning fighting in the trenches in Europe in World War I. He lived into his 90's. All brave men whom I am very, very proud of.

But the truth is: I am a Bleeding Heart Liberal. Always have been, always will be. I Hate War. I Hate everything about it. EXCEPT the men and women who serve their countries with honor and bravery and self sacrifice. I am in absolute awe of anyone who wears a uniform in the service of protecting all of us "others" -- our freedoms, our country, our very lives. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) I am not a person who only thinks about our service men and women only on certain days of the year. I can honestly say I think about them every single day of my life. Especially every time I hear of another's death on NPR, every time I see a flag. Days like yesterday are particularly heart wrenching. Listening to the Memorial Service at Fort Hood Texas was staggering in every respect. I had never heard a military "Role Call" enacted before and was once again reminded that all who serve in the military are "Veterans" when they leave, whether they perish in a foreign country or not. We should be honoring each and every one, those who have died and those who were willing to die ---- for us.
