Veterans’ Day 2013

Monday is Veterans Day.  To all the Veterans who served our country … Thank you VERY Much.  When vets came back from Vietnam, they were not treated as well as returning vets are today.  Today, you do see folks thanking the vets when they are at home.  I hope members of the class of 1965 will thank our classmates/vets, who served in the Vietnam era (and after) by adding your words of gratitude at the end of this posting.  Last year only a few people added their words of thanks.  So to the Vets of our class (and all Vets), please accept these few words of gratitude from all your high school friends.  Thank you VERY much. 

Our class had many men and women who served their country.  Many saw action in Vietnam.  Some died while in service to our country.  Many will never be the same as they were in high school.  All were very young.   The names of our Class of 1965 vets are listed below.   If you are a member of the class of 1965 and a vet and your name is not listed, please let us know by clicking HERE or by using Contact (to the right under the Main Menu).  I will add your name to the list.  If you are a vet and have some words to say please feel free to “comment” at the bottom of this posting.

Many companies and restaurants are doing different things as a way of saying thanks to veterans.  I did a little digging to find out what freebies and discounts might be available to vets on Veterans’ Day.  Our vets may want to take advantage of some of these opportunities.  I found five (there are lots more) places on the internet which tell you about different offers.   I set up all five places with the links.  All you have to do is click on them to go to them.  They will open in a separate window or tab.
