Veteran's Day Past/Present

Hubs saw this sign while in the Navy in the early 1980's.   Our young people were shocked at this attitude, when hubs told them this.

Fortunately society has a different attitude toward Veterans now!  Our Veterans deserve the utmost respect.  They give of themselves to allow us freedom.

A few decades later they receive respect.   This is a case of attitudes do get better, with time....

We had a wonderful day with our 2 fabulous kids.  A day of fun eating at nice Restaurants.   Sam's Club gave him a Hugo folding cane  (I hope to use it someday, maybe)

Time spent with family is enjoyed by me all.   Attitudes can change!

I hope you can also use that cane one day..... then one day you will throw that cane away and walk all on your own. That is my wish for you!!

I pray more change to come. Evil is seen and believed. Soldiers are taken care of as they take care of us. And you my dear person walk and run.

I'ts like the 'old South Africa' when the best beaches or park benches bore notices "Whites Only". Thank goodness those days are past.

Hi Kim,

Thanks for your visit to my blog to read my precious friend Jackie's post.

Also, thank you to your husband for the service he gave to this great country. I'm saddened that signs like that existed but even more saddened by what I see today. Veterans and men and women who are serving active duty now don't receive half of what they should in many ways. I'm thankful for some change but praying for Christ-centered change.

Blessings to you and your family!!

Kim -

This is kind of funny. I was in the Navy and I can kind of relate to this.

It is good, though, that attitudes over the years have changed. It's sad that peoples' perspectives toward the military was so negative back then.

Glad that you...er I mean everyone had a good time. :)

God bless!
