"Reach your hand out to your vets"

". . . because they need it today."

Especially in my thoughts today are the veterans who care for their fellow veterans, particularly those who care for our wounded vets in VA facilities around the nation. 

Thank you, and God bless you. 


This video comes courtesy of molinelobo, whose father, a sailor and former tailor, was called upon in January of 1943 to hurriedly help make Franklin Delano Roosevelt's flag, featured in the video. This flag was flown by the USS Memphis, the cruiser that transported Franklin D. Roosevelt to the Casablanca Conference, where FDR and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill outlined plans for the invasion of Sicily and Italy and met with representatives of the Free French Forces. The flag now resides in the Roosevelt Presidential Library.
