Thank you Veterans! You are held in high esteem!

Today, we give thanks and praise to all who have served in our military—whether that service was in the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Marines, the Coast Guard, the National Guard, or any position within our military system—my thanks go out to you every day—but especially so on this day: YOUR DAY!

I had intended to photograph the Veterans Day parade—as I do every year. This year, however, I awakened feeling most unwell. Throughout the day, I was plagued with diarrhea, itchy eyes, stomach cramps, and all other symptoms of a viral infection. I stayed indoors, drank great quantities of liquids, and am now feeling much better. I was far too ill and weak earlier to create this blog post. I now feel much recovered and anticipate feeling fully recovered tomorrow morning.
