Thank You — Gratitude – 20 — Vets

It’s no secret that American Veterans saved the world in playing the most major part to end World War II.

201

But our gratitude toward them seems to hide in the closet for most of the year; then it’s brought forth profusely on military holidays, and at other celebrations with our own families.

Let’s go more public for our Vets — Yes, capital “V” !

Did you thank a Vet yet this year on any day other than today — Memorial Day, 2018?

276

Thank you, Veterans of America, for carrying our flag into battle and securing my life as it exists today! I was six months old when my own father (1924-2011) returned from a world of war to a life of peace.

What would you like to write about concerning veterans, or a Vet in your family?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section!

(BONUS Trivia: How long did it take Gutzon Borglum and, eventually, his son to sculpt the four Presidential facial figures that became the famous work at Mount Rushmore?
ANSWER: 16 years!)

Since I first touched a pencil to paper, I've been writing. Where that passion has taken me as I lived life is explored in my Primary blog, http://www.mywritinglifexposed.wordpress.com . I love animals, including race horses, about whom I have written much, and I've always had a dog in my life. Shouldn't animals have their say? In my Second Primary blog, http://www.horsesandanimalsaretalkin.wordpress.com , I give them a chance to speak. In the Composite blog http://www.nearthefinishline.wordpress.com , I explore my life's journey and observations. Other interests -- poetry, sports, photography, thankfulness, story ideas, self-publishing, story art, fiction, and more -- get their due in my other (17) blogs. I'm from a rural community in Ohio, lived nine years in Vermont, then returned to my native Henry County in 1980. I've worked for various local newspapers and attended classes in writing over the years before retiring to free-lancing in 2008. It was after my migration back to Ohio that I began BAT Publishing in earnest. It is strictly a self-publishing enterprise in that I publish my own works -- novels, novelettes, short stories with my Roughcraft Art -- in my own softcover, or loose-leaf notebook, designs. My photos and artwork are also incorporated in the books. Prior to this endeavor, I produced a periodic story booklet for young writers only entitled "Connections". Its success sparked my interest in self-publishing my own titles.
