A Moment for Veterans

A nice article about Veteran's Day. Mostly, my guess is that people see it as a day off before Thanksgiving. (I know I appreciate that.)

In San Francisco:

"There was a time when every city and small town had a rousing Veterans Day parade. But times have changed and the all-volunteer military more than three decades ago has meant fewer Americans have worn a uniform. San Francisco held a sparsely attended parade on Sunday."

But since we have soldiers fighting across the globe, it's nice to take a moment and remember the sacrifices of everyone who's fought for their country.
