During today’s stirring Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, President Obama placed a commemorative wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, precisely at 11:11.

The US Army Band and Choir stirred the crowd, including veterans of all ages and types. The event was masterfully carried out and hosted by the Military Order of World Wars, of which my father-in-law is an officer in Santa Barbara.

I also visited the area’s memorials honoring men and women veterans from Vietnam, Korea and World War II.  I posted this photo album on Facebook, which I think you can access regardless of your Facebook status. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2633290555533.2148531.1353486654&type=1&l=849cfa9875

Especially today, I salute my father, father-in-law, family and friends for the sacrifices they have made in the service of our country!
