Veterans' Day

When I arrived on campus this morning, I saw this from my office window.  The Air Force ROTC cadets are taking turns holding a flag vigil.  Periodically, another set of cadets arrives, salutes, then takes the place of the others.  Those leaving their posts slowly pivot and walk away.  It's very moving, and I wanted to record this reminder.  My father is a veteran of the Korean War, and my father-in-law served in World War II. 


  1. So glad to see these fine young people giving and receiving recognition. Thank you for sharing in your post. Cherry Kay

  2. Thank you for reminding us all.

  3. To begin with, I love the name of your blog. Too funny.

    What a heartfelt sight you have from your office window today.

    Your round table is perfect for its new home. I must say, I like your in-laws' chairs. Maybe you just don't like the color.

    Thanks for visiting my brand new blog.

  4. Oh wow, what a beautiful thing to witness. Have you ever been to Washington DC to see the changing of the guard? That's what it reminds me of. Thanks for stopping by - we have SO much in common, don't we? Sandi
