Ragtag Daily Prompts: Bravery, November 11, 2019 (Veteran’s Day)

Famous for their bravery, dogs will lay down their lives to protect those that they love. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

FOWC with Fandango: Window, also Monday Window challenge

IMG_8687IMG_8707IMG_8686I’ve shown this particular window before, but last time it was open. I guess that’s a hint of the direction the weather is beginning to take. Today it was t-shirt window. Now they’re calling for snow. Ouch!

Happy Memorial Day!

TR saluteThis is TR. He is 97 years of age, a veteran of World War II. TR served in the Navy. Because he was a bit under weight, he was initially told by a Navy recruiter that he probably wasn’t fit for active duty. A quick thinker, TR told the recruiter that there was an officer at the Army’s recruitment office who wanted him to sign up with their outfit. Without further ado, TR was accepted into the Navy where he served with distinction. Proud of his service, TR is always quick to add that he is very grateful that during his time in the Navy, he was never required to take another life. “I don’t know if I could live with that,” he says.
