Salute to our Veterans

To my Great Uncle Lt. Gus Hamilton, who gave his life in World War II; to my Grandfather CWO4 Quincy McPhail, who served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam; to my friend Daniel Hamberg [USMC] (sorry, buddy, couldn't remember your rank) who was injured in Afghanistan severely enough to be medically retired before he was even 30; to all those who serve, have served, and will serve - Thank You! We live free because of your sacrifices.

The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year on November 11th at Arlington National Cemetery . The ceremony commences precisely at 11:00 a.m. with a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns and continues inside the Memorial Amphitheater with a parade of colors by veterans' organizations and remarks from dignitaries. The ceremony is intended to honor and thank all who served in the United States Armed Forces. -
