Thanskgiving - Postcard Friendship Friday #37

It is November, the month in which Americans celebrate Thanksgiving.  But on November 12, we also honor veterans on Veteran's Day--thanking them for their service to our country.

Today I am thankful for my Grandfather who served in WW1, for Dad who was captured by Nazi's in WW2, for Uncle Joe who served in Vietnam, for Uncle Kelly who served in Korea, for my brother in law Guy who served in Desert Storm, and for my nephew David who serves our country today.  But I am thankful--not just for these who are precious to me, but to the thousands of men and women across the world--from many countries--who sacrifice daily to keep the world safe.

Love that this card covered both Thanksgiving and Veteran's Day!

Bet the turkey's not looking forward to thanksgiving. Nice card and sentiment of your and other families service.

Beautiful card! The turkey is balanced very precariously - on a knife?

We have our Remembrance Sunday - on Sunday.:) But yesterday we observed the 2 minutes silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Happy Friday,Beth!
I thank all of the honorable men in your family that served our country and for those that still are. My heart goes out to your father, for his capture must have been beyond terrible.

This image is powerful ... perfect for honoring the men and women who protect us.

Nice turkey! He appears to be looking forward to Thanksgiving as much as I am!
Very nice tribute to Veterans on Veteran's Day!

Sheila has it right in the U.S. - Veteran's Day is observed at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Those veterans who have passed on are remembered on Memorial Day, but it never hurts to remember them all on Veteran's Day as well.

Respect for all military, who risked for the benefit of all!
