Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to do something to honor a vet. I can't think of any that I know personally at this time. At my job we did place American Flags in our flower beds surrounding the front door.

Yes, I actually have recently let a WWII Veteran know how very much I appreciated his service to our country. I applaud all the men and women who serve in our armed forces. Without them, I would not live in a free society. I live in "Small Town America". We pray for the safe return of our loved ones and share the grief for those who are lost. For me, this is a very deeply felt issue. My empathy for our service members and their families is never far from my heart.

Aside from celebrating my 'Veteran's Day' birthday, I thought a lot about my two older brothers, both veterans and both deceased now (one in '91 and the other in 2000)and I still miss them.

Yes, I did. My husband is a vet and I am proud of him. I made him a special dinner and I made sure the kids knew they needed to be proud of their daddy and his service in the Navy.

I went with my mom yesterday to visit my grandpa in a nursing home. He's a vet and we had a good visit!

Actually, my son just returned from active duty with the Navy, and I am so grateful to have him home safe and sound. Big hugs were doled out yesterday, with heartfelt hopes that other Mom's get to see their sons and daughters all home again soon.

I sent messages to other about honoring not the old but also the young yesterday. I went to our local Veteran's Day celebration.

I have four sons who are Navy veterans of the Gulf War. I spoke to all four of them yesterday.

I sent my friend a message, he has been to Iraq twice now hopefully there won't be a 3rd trip before he gets out of the army. Also spent some time watching some of the Veteran's day specials they had on TV.

I attended my daughter's Veteran's Day Presentation at her school. They played the anthem to each military branch and honored guests recognized for their service in the US Armed Services.

The kids sang a patriotic song, a presenter sang Amazing Grace, and dang it, I said I wasn't going to cry. But I did. When they played Celine Dion's version of God Bless America it just let loose.

Because our community is so close to Forth Worth we also honored those men and women affected by the tragedy. Clearly it was a very emotional day and also a time for giving Thanks to all those that help to protect our way of life in the US.

I watched what I could catch on TV commemorating the day. I missed out on getting a poppy as I'm in the US this month.

We talked to our boys about the meaning of the day and watched a service on TV. This is the same thing we do every year.

I had to work, but we did watch a special on TV while preparing dinner. Sad, we don't have the local parades in our town like we used to.

I have not done anything! My son, wrote a beautiful paper, a tribute of a Veteran for his class project. He's done this for the past two years. Both tributes were of Vietnam veterans.
