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.

  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
