TMP link From last year but still the message is the same …

As I stated last year, also will do this year.

I'll fly my flag tomorrow and I'm going up my church to ring the bell at the eleventh hour for 21 times as a statement of hope for continued peace. This follows from our bell ringing last year [2018], also 21 times, to commemorate the end of the "war to end all wars." The bell ringing is being coordinated by the WW1 Centennial Project.

I got to the local cemetary the day after and put flowers or flags at the gravesites of vets that don't have any.

My flag flies 7x24x365

Thanks Legion for resending that link. It just about says it all. Happy Veterans Day to all our brother and sister vets.
Ceremonies here have been curtailed both due to covid and
extremely heavy rains. I too went to the cemetery yesterday
and flags were being placed on every veteran grave site.

I stopped what I was doing at 11:11 and said some prayers for veterans living & dead.
