Veterans Day….on the 11th hours of the 11th day of the 11th month

Thank you to everyone who has served. Is serving? And to those who have lost loved ones serving. And a special thank you to all the spouses of soldiers who are or who have gone abroad. Many of whom, have received their husbands back in tattered shards, gone are the men they knew and loved.  We often fail to remember the sacrifice they make as well.

Excellent podcast commemorating Veteran’s Day by Jack Spirko over at The Survival Podcast that I’d like to share with you.

Perhaps the saddest part is the commentary about how, for the mere goal of a more perfect soundbite, soldiers had to die waiting until the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month – so that Armistice could be announced so perfectly.
