More than Veterans

Mom with Lou Friend and Bob Hogan 1943

Last week I wrote about my father’s Navy service (see Overseas) and so today a moment to honor not simply service to our country but the many ways it shaped and created countless lives.  World War II created social structures (our mother with friends at right) and set the stage for a generation that would truly change the world.  A kiss to those who served, and to those who love them.

Here is a link to a new, beautiful song by Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straits fame) to commemorate Armistice Day.
