Happy Veteran's Day!

I agree! There was a whole conversation about this on the radio this morning. People don't even put out flags anymore for Veteran's Day! To be honest, I totally forget it was today. For some reason I thought it was next week.

 

Thank you to all those who have served our country and fought for our freedoms' and liberties, as I surely don't have the guts to do what they do!

in Canada today is Rememberance Day for us..its like Veterans Day....but i think the younger generations in both countries dont understand how important it is what happened in those wars and that we should be thankful...its pretty sad

 

my FI went over the PA system at his work (a retail store) and asked if everyone could observe a minute of silence and stop what they were doing and he said not one person stopped or seemed to care....but both my Great-Grandfathers served in World War 2 and i will always be thankful for them :) our world would be so different if the veterans werent brave many many years ago..THANK YOU! i would never be as brave as they were

I'm so proud of the elementary school I work at. They had a huge celebration this morning and brought in veterans from the Lions Club and people currently serving. We have military vehicles parked outside so the kids can see them up close. We had several presentations, the kids sang the National Anthem together, and a poster/essay contest about the meaning of liberty, freedom, and service. Members of the military are visiting classrooms all day and having lunch with the kids. So cool to get the kids involved!

 

My grandfather was a WWII veteran and received two purple hearts. I'm for sure thinking about his bravery and service to our country today!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
