Happy Veterans Day! – Redux

This is a post from 2013 I wrote for Veteran’s Day. It’s been updated to fit our current “situation”. Please Enjoy!


George W. Bush
Do you enjoy your Freedom?
Barack Obama
I sure know I do!
Bill Clinton
Hey babe, what’s the definition of ‘is’ again?
I give the BEST Freedom! It's tremendous!

Alright. Enough from those guys. How about some pictures showing off a few of my favorite Veterans? Here we go.

Let’s start with Grand Faddah.

Day is done, gone the sun

From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky
All is well, safely rest
God is nigh.

Fading light dims the sight
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright
From afar, drawing near
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise for our days
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky
As we go, this we know

God is nigh.

(The Lyrics to Taps)

Now, let’s have a look at Faddah. He served in the Navy, back in the day.

Faddah, Bruddah and Brojo.

So, all the pictures I’ve shared (after all the Presidents) have included ALL Veterans, except for me. So, who does that leave? Correct…Bruddah!

During this Veteran’s Day, I would like to thank all Veterans for their service, and a special thank you to my Brother, Dad, and Grandpa. Your service was and is much appreciated.

Love you always,

Don BroJo
