For all who served our Country.

Candid eye contact street photography from Glasgow, Scotland. Just a tiny 'Veteran' badge hints at the story behind this man on the street. I just loved the light on his silver hair and after capturing this he politely asked me if I had captured him okay. Enjoy!
Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11.
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

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.

A BIG thank you to the men and women of the military who have fought to defend our country's freedom.
Happy Veterans Day!
Also this is kinda a preview of a upcoming custom:D!
Vietnam war lasted for 19 years, 5 months, 4 weeks & 1 day and only the 'Holy Ghost' knows how many countless lives were lost during that unfortunate, and many argued unnecessary period in memoriam. It was Forty-two years ago when the last napalm bomb was dropped in Hanoi and the last rifle was shot in Saigon.
Yet the ghastly ghosts of the war's past still continues to haunt and produce casualties to those who have witnessed their terror first-hand. .

Happy Veterans Day and a huge THANK YOU!
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
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

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.
All indications were that a homeless veteran had taken over this room. Roadside craftsman, Puget Sound, WA.

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.
Please Note: This is not my picture, it is from MSNBC.com. It's from yesterday's memorial of the shooting victims at Ft. Hood in Texas.
While every service member that is called to duty overseas is fully aware of the possibility of meeting the enemy, there is no greater betrayal than to be shot down by one of your own. Especially in this case, by someone who's duty it was to help those returning from the battlefield, cope with getting back into day to day life.
I'm not going to speculate on his motivation...Lord knows it's easy to get caught up in a wave of disgust for his actions...but when it comes right down to it, with 13 dead and around 40 wounded - some very seriously - those are the people that need to be thought of today. Them, and their families. And of all the fallen from countless conflicts and wars, and those they left behind.
The majority of the people that voluntarily join the military should be commended for doing so. They take care of the dirty work, so that we can feel safe in our beds at night. Those, and those killed in action, are the ones we should remember today.
Gone the sun.
From the lakes
From the hills.
From the sky
All is well.
God is nigh.
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.
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,
Veterans Thank You for your service and enjoy your day. God Bless America.
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.
On Santa Monica beach. They came from all walks of life and belief.
