Happy Veterans Day!

On Veterans Day we honor those who have served in our armed forces. Knoxville is having their annual Veterans Day Parade, like many other places. Historically, this began to be observed on Armistice Day, the day hostilities ceased on the Western Front, between the Allies and Germany.

Today, we have many in uniform who give of themselves for the country, yet as we saw last year at Fort Hood, when they return to the States, they are assigned to gun free zones, and thus may be disarmed at the time of greatest need.

Pray for the safety of those who are far away in combat zones; as well as those (and their families) on our 'safe' military bases worldwide.
