I did a nice salute to veterans in commemoration of Veterans's Day on the VNV Facebook page,  I actually did it several times, each time losing my pages. Not having copied my copy I had to rewrite each time. By the third time I was a bit frustrated, but managed to get an abbreviated post up. I wanted to post like a blog with multiple pictures, but facebook wouldn't let me do that. Have to read the post from bottom to top to make some sense of it, as I had to put it all up in separate posts. Of course the many posts did not align sequentially, so you'll have to try figure it out. There are 10 military persons for every 990 civilians. Usually not that appreciated unless the stuff hits the fan. They deserve some appreciation.
