An Army Wife's Life

Once upon a time I was a college student, then I was a teacher, and now I'm a mother. Technically, I'm currently a freelance writer... but really I am an ARMY WIFE. Expect to find... funny (at least to me) anecdotes, thoughts about la vida military, hopes, anxieties, dreams, commentaries on current events.

Military Family Blog Carnival: Veterans' Day...

This week's Military Family Carnival Theme is: Veterans' Day...

This one is wide open--a biography of your favorite veteran, what the day means to you, pictures of your hometown parade, ideas for ways to honor our veterans...whatever you would like to share about the day! On Friday, I will move this post back up to the top and copy your links into the main body of the post.

Growing up in a small town in suburban New York, I did not think very much about veterans. There was the occasional visit to the retirement home, where some veterans lived. And my grandfather is a veteran of the Korean War, having served as a musician. Occasionally, there was reference to the men and women who had served when we studied the World Wars in history class.

Mostly, though, Veteran's Day was just a day off from school for us. A chance to stay up late on Sunday and go to a midnight showing at the movie theater or have an extra party that weekend.

I've been spending this weekend with my favorite veteran and trying to think about the meaning of this day.

Today is about honoring the men and women who have committed themselves to serving this country.

They protected our nation and fought when called upon to do so by our elected representatives.

Even after their service, many continue to look after the soldiers who still serve. Speaking for those who are asked to remain silent in the name of military discipline and readiness.

On Veterans' Day, we let them know that we value their sacrifices and have not forgotten them. We acknowledge that they spent many months, even years, away from their families, so that we could enjoy ours. We stop to think about the nights they spend sleeping on cold, wet ground, so that we could rest in comfort. We remember all the hours that dragged on while they willingly placed themselves in harm's way so that we could be safe.

But it shouldn't stop with just today.

I urge you to visit the Veterans Affairs site and find out about pending veteran legislation and also the House Committee on Veteran Affairs. Visit the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation to find out more about how you can support their programs. Write a note for a veteran and drop it off at a Veterans' Affairs Medical Center. Wave that flag proudly as the veterans parade by.

Most importantly, please remember to thank any veteran you meet for serving our country.

I hope you will join me this week and share a post about Veteran's Day:
  1. Please post on the theme. If you do not have a blog, ask to hijack a friend's for the day or consider Guest Blogging your post on An Army Wife's Life.
  2. Please link back to this post so your readers will come read and maybe participate, too.
  3. Add your post title and specific post URL (not your entire blog) to Mr. Linky.
To encourage participation, I will be offering a prize. At the end of the month, one participant will be chosen at random to win a copy of Doonesbury.com's The Sandbox: Dispatches from Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I am really hoping you'll join me and that this will build, because I think it would be fun!

UPDATE: I'm moving this to the top so everyone can see these cool posts. I'll place them and any others that are added in the meantime as permalinks sometime on Sunday and then the next topic will be up on Monday (Being part of the Military Family makes me thankful for...). So please visit these cool posts, comment, and start thinking about your next post.

Please read, visit, and comment:

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I started take up real income.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

We should be painstaking and discriminating in all the intelligence we give. We should be signally careful in giving information that we would not think of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to avoid giving counsel which we don't tag along when it damages those who transport us at our word.

To be a good benign being is to be enduring a make of openness to the world, an ability to trust undeterminable things beyond your own restrain, that can take you to be shattered in uncommonly extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly outstanding relating to the fettle of the righteous compulsion: that it is based on a corporation in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a prize, something fairly feeble, but whose extremely precise attractiveness is inseparable from that fragility.

In the US, Phentermine is currently sold under the brand names Ionamin® (Medeva Pharmaceuticals) and Adipex-P® (Gate Pharmaceuticals). It is also available as a generic medication, known as 'phentermine'.Previously, it was sold under the name Fastin® (formerly produced by King Pharmaceuticals for SmithKline Beecham). In December 1998, SK-Beecham withdrew Fastin from the market.
[url=http://www.buyphentermine1.com]phentermine[/url]
The newest cocktail involving Phentermine is "Phen-Pro" - the "Pro" standing for Prozac. Any one of the following antidepressants: Zoloft, Celexa, Luvox, Trazadone or Effexor may be used in lieu of Prozac.
The use of the antidepressant in the Phen-Pro cocktail is unrelated to depression. The cocktail is necessary because the effects of Phentermine, when used alone, lessen over time. The Phen-Pro cocktail enables Phentermine to work better and for a longer period of time. The cocktail does not appear to cause the problems that resulted from the usage of Fen-Phen.

How should this phentermine be used?

Phentermine comes in tablets and extended-release capsules. It usually is taken as a single daily dose in the morning or three times a day 30 minutes before meals. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take phentermine exactly as directed.
