Take a moment to thank a veteran.

– Wiccapundit

What was originally Armistice Day (remember the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” in 1918), intended to celebrate the end of The Great War The War to End All Wars World War I (before we had the sense to start numbering them), is now celebrated as Veteran’s Day.  Here’s our appreciation for those who have served:

Thank you.

    My husband, who served in the Air Force during peace time, never fails to say “thank you” to military service people that he encounters in daily life. When he is in a location where it is possible, he purchases a coffee and donut for them, or a gift card, or simply pays for their purchases at the cash register. I have been following his lead and the other day I saw a young service man in fatigues who was just leaving a gas station. I said to him, “thank you for your service to our country.”

    He was so surprised that he blushed and was lost for words for a moment. The cashier smiled and said to him, “you’re not sure how to respond to that, are you?”

    The young man smiled a bit and shook his head and the door closed behind him. It may have been a somewhat awkward encounter, but at least he will know that there are people who appreciate what he is doing and who support him in their hearts.

    Oh…and btw, I am taking my tests for my First Degree. My wife already finished hers.

      Congratulations! Just to clarify: First Degree in the Craft, or First Degree Black Belt in martial arts? I practice both, so the terminology is similar.

      If the Craft, then what tradition?

        Correllian Tradition, both of us. (She is a Solitary, and I will be too) I still have about 8 months to meet my year and a day.

  4. It saddens me to find servicemen and -women who have no idea how to react to a simple “thank you”. That tells me they are not told enough.
