A Salute to our Veterans

11-11-09a.jpg

Today on Veterans Day I want to honor all of our veterans - past, present and future.

November 11th was named as Armistice Day in 1919 and was known by that name until 1954 when it became Veterans Day.

It is the day we salute all of our veterans and the wonderful job they do to protect our country.

My Dad, Earl Gillians, was so proud to have served in the U.S. Marines - he was at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and was also at Iwo Jima when the flag was raised.

Thank you, men and women of all of the armed services - we are proud of you!
