Today is Veteran's Day... the day to honor and remember all the men and women who served (and are still serving) in our Nation's Armed Forces. So to all of them... THANK YOU!
Usually, my Veteran's Day posts are more somber, but since today's holiday fell on a Friday, (my "Funny" day), I decided to let our guys and gals in uniform show you the lighter side of military life. It can get pretty intense for them sometimes and you just have to grab your fun however and whenever you can. I found these pics on CrookedBrains blog and the joke came from the Reader's Digest's "Humor In Uniform".
A retired Navy admiral, my father, began a second career working in a bank. One morning, while he prepared his desk for the day, he was approached by a young officer from the nearby Naval base.
“Sorry, but this department isn’t open yet,” Dad said.
“But its nine o’clock!” protested the officer.
My father didn’t look at his watch. Instead, he surveyed his customer’s uniform.
“Ensign,” he snapped, “I’ll decide when it’s nine o’clock!”

Because their sacrifice for our freedom is never a laughing matter, we chose to remember them with respect and honor. However, we all know... laughter is the best medicine.
HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!
