On Veterans Day

Veterans Day

Taken at The Wall, November 11, 2008.

The Purple Heart you see here is legitimate in a sense, though I have never served in the armed forces.  I wear this sometimes, both RL and SL, as a tribute to my father, who served in the 329th Infantry during World War II, and was wounded in France.

While “the last argument of kings” is never a desirable thing (except to madmen), there are times when the men and women of a country have stepped forward to serve that country’s needs.  I salute them and their memory on this day.
