HOLIDAYS: "Happy 232nd birthday, USMC!"
Short, sweet, to-the-point post today:
Happy 232nd birthday to the United States Marine Corps!
Please donate to the Project Valour-IT Veterans Day Fundraiser, to provide voice-activated laptop computers to injured and disabled veterans if you get a chance to... as well. It's a small way for us to give back to men whose contributions to our society are easy to take for granted.
As a veteran myself and coming from a family with a long, proud service record, I'm always happy to celebrate Veteran's Day with my American friends and Remembrance Day with my Canadian, Ozzie, and British friends.
I also want to send out a special thanks to my father and grandfathers who served across the world to preserve some of the many freedoms I enjoy today whether in Cuba, Brazil, Europe, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, or elsewhere.

And a Gut Shabbos to my Jewish readers!
