Veterans Day is the day in the U.S. that we honor all those who have worn the nations’s uniform. Not surprisingly, many countries have a day for honoring Veterans — in Canada and Great Britain it it is called Remembrance Day and in France it is Armistice Day. Some countries have a similar day but celebrate it at a different time. It is a shared desire to give thanks for people willing to serve on behalf of others.
Today we honor several of our members who are veterans:
Kurt Von Schriltz
Richard “Dick” Routh

I have to admit it was pretty cool to see those 5 little turtles dig their way out of the ground! The miracle of new life!
