It is Veterans Day weekend, a time to remember the sacrifices made on our behalf by so many for our freedom and liberty.
This weekend is special for another reason — a veteran near and dear to my heart. This Sunday, Nov. 11th, friends and family will remember my dear friend and radio show producer Dave Logan with a ceremony on the beach at Cape Canaveral. There, we will scatter this patriot veteran’s ashes on a day so appropriate for his love and service to our country, a day when we honor all our uniformed men and women of the military. Dave served in the U.S. Army’s 7th MP Company, at Ft Ord, CA.
I visited Dave’s blogsite this evening to reflect on all the posts he wrote about Veterans Day. He never forgot our vets. And he never wanted us to forget either.
I found one post in particular that I am reprinting here because in it, Dave linked to the wonderful organization “Bugles Across America”. Please read it and know that this Sunday morning, one of those volunteer buglers will — at Dave’s request — play taps on the beach as we fulfill both of Dave’s final wishes — that a bugler from BAA sound taps as his earthly remains are joined with the sea and sand near the place where America celebrated its finest moments — in the shadow of the launch pads that sent our men on their way to the moon.

VETERANS DAY 2008
by Dave “ThirdWaveDave” Logan
Two sites related to our military that you should check out: Great Americans and Bugles Across America. Monday night, Andrea interviewed reps from these two sites. They do extraordinary work on behalf of our military and they are deserving of our support.
*** Marathon Pundit has a great tribute to the Veterans from his hometown of Morton Grove, Illinois.
