Veteran's Day 2016


Today was the day to Celebrate the Service and Sacrifice of all of the Men and Women who have Served in our Armed Forces.  We went to the Veteran's Day Parade in Downtown Phoenix, which is one of the three largest in our Nation.  The Mayor of Phoenix came and shook The Man's hand and Thanked him for his Service, I should have gotten a pix of that, but it all happened so fast and was such a huge Surprise my reflexes weren't that on point!  *Darn it!*  There was a wonderful turnout and an abundance of Pride and Patriotism, you could Feel the Love from the entire Community!   The weather was Glorious, Sunny, not too Hot and a nice Breeze.  I took him for his Complimentary Luncheon Honoring Veterans generously provided by Applebys after the Parade and later in the day for his Complimentary Dinner Honoring Veterans generously provided by Olive Garden.  For once all of the Sensory Overload was not too much for him, he's making remarkable Progress in the Challenges having TBI has caused, especially out in Public.  So he thoroughly Enjoyed the whole day with no Anxieties and basking in the great show of Appreciation from the Public.  Thank You all Active Duty and Veterans, we owe you a tremendous debt of Gratitude!  And Thank You to the American Public for Honoring all of these Heros and acknowledging the Families of them as well.
