Happy Veteran’s Day 2018

Today, and every day, we thank those brave men and women that have served, and those currently serving, the United States of America.  Today, November 11 is the official holiday to honor all our veterans.   Veteran’s Day is from Armistice Day, the end of World War I.   The treaty was signed at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month.   That was November 11, 1918.   Yes, this is the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.   Please call and thank a veteran today.   Perhaps take a veteran for coffee or a meal.   Visit a hospitalized veteran.   Deliver some veteran’s day greeting cards.  We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks and our humans, pause to reflect on how much we owe our veterans.   Please don’t let Veteran’s Day be a lost day, overshadowed between the shopping frenzies of Halloween and Christmas.

Happy Veteran’s Day

Thanks you veterans.

Veteran’s Day Festival 2014

Saturday, November 8, 2014 we went to Denver’s Civic Center Park for a festival. This festival was for American veterans.

The parade was in the morning, followed by the festival.   It was fun.   We like veterans.   They protect the freedom we all enjoy.

We saw military vehicles.

It is a M29C Weasel, from 1944, and built by Studebaker.   It was used in World War II.   Look at these tires.

This is fabulous

We liked all of these.

The people at Rocky Mountain Honor Flight had a great booth. They accept donations to take veterans, mostly World War II Veterans, to Washington D.C. to see the monuments dedicated to themselves, the American heroes.   The veterans do not pay for this trip, and if necessary a Guardian companion is provided for them.   This poster shows some veterans in Washington D.C. from prior trips.

The played while many veterans were eating.   Of course, I, Zeb the Duck, and Soapy Smith Duck, and our moms also wanted to eat.   We tried one of the food trucks. Look at these sandwiches.

We love big sandwiches

They were delicious.   You may have noticed our new duck relatives.   Our moms purchased them from another group that helps veterans.

Saturday was a warm, sunny day for a parade and festival. We hope you had a good weekend and attended a Veteran’s Day activity. Veteran’s Day is Tuesday, November 11, but many cities celebrate the Saturday before the holiday.
