Happy Veterans Day! Thank You for Serving Our Country!

Happy Veterans Day to my dad Dick, my father-in-law Jim, and all the Vets I’ve worked with in the past and in the present!  My dad was in the Army during the Korean Conflict; and my father in law was in the Air Force. Thank you for serving our country.

Over the weekend Randy and I listened to the Iowa Military Veterans Band play at the Civic Center. It was really good! I was surprised how full of variety it was for a “band”. There was singing, a skit, and many instrumental solos. The instruments were incredible and included a harp! The crowd joined in many times singing and dancing! Waving our little American flags too!

There was one band member recognized who served in WWII. And there were quite a few in the crowd who did as well.  The veterans in the audience were well honored! The event was free and well done. (I shed a tear or two…) I’ve heard this popular band before, they play in a number of locations and draw large crowds.

I am proud to support Veterans with returning to work! Here’s a post that I love to share about a Veteran I helped.  I also have experience assessing independent living needs for Chapter 31 Veterans and helping them achieve their goals.

Here’s a short clip of happy dogs welcoming soldiers home.  It’s great and leads into a post about one smart dog!  To the love of man and woman’s best friend (Hi Bella!…We love you! bark! bark! Although I don’t think you would’ve made a very good military dog…..being an Aussie and all who thinks she has to make noise and herd everything in site….)
