And…I THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
In my household, we love, respect, celebrate and honor our Veterans. Both my partner (Carla) and I had father’s that served in the military. Carla serves Veterans every day as a devoted and caring health care worker at the V.A. hospital.
When I have had the honor to meet some of the many Veterans that Carla has cared for, they have told me beautiful stories about their service, love of their country and their military brotherhood. We always stop to talk to Veterans when we see them and offer assistance when we can.
When a new military film is released we see it as soon as we can. Neither one of us enjoy violent movies but we do like understanding what these brave men and women have gone through while fighting for and protecting our freedom and our country.
Today while browsing the titles that are featured on DeepDiscount.com for their site-wide sale I was drawn to the Military films. I prefer films that depict real stories and are often emotional. War and Military films are set in various times throughout history. The atmosphere may be different depending on the era, but the brotherhood of the soldiers remains the same through every branch of the military and through every war or conflict.
Once again, I THANK all veterans and those currently serving our country for your bravery and protection of our country. I also thank the families that that stand behind their loved ones and wait patiently for them to return from their duties and missions.

Here is a historical fact about Veterans Day and why it is tied to a specific time on November 11, each year.
The day of recognition was first called Armistice Day. On November 11, 1918, at 11:00 am a cease-fire or armistice took place in Europe during World War 1. President Woodrow Wilson said that the armistice anniversary deserved recognition and on June 4, 1928, congress passed a resolution to make it a legal holiday and it was in 27 states. In 1938 November 11 was made a legal holiday. After World War II the act was amended to honor veterans of that war as well as Korea. In 1954 the name was changed to Veterans Day.
Wishing all of our Veterans as well as those that are currently serving our country a beautiful…..11/11/2022
