Wordless Wednesday – Remembering Our Veterans


Remembering Our Veterans

Our Dads: World War II Veterans, Harvey Buickerood (U.S. Army) & E.M. (Bud) Blue (U.S. Navy)


While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans, Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our fellow countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedoms.


Randy Neugebauer


Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, honoring military veterans; persons (and animals) who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

We hope everything is allright at your place, kittiesblue. We’re a little worried, because you’re not here today🙏🙏🙏🐾😽💞

The Human’s dad was a marine. He served in the South Pacific for four long years during WWII, including at Guadalcanal, and then was sent to occupy Nagasaki after the second atomic bomb was dropped. He was a very brave and kind man and the Human feels lucky to be his daughter. XOXOXO

Thanks for showing us those brave men who did a lot for us all. We really need to keep that in mind during these crazy days

A huge thank you to all our veterans.

I was here yesterday, but didn’t comment because I don’t have any kitties.

Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches to the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

We are so grateful for all those who served, and those who are still serving, so that we can be free. Thank you, veterans. We will never forget.

We remember those that fought for our freedom!


Brian Frum November 11, 2020 at 8:48 am

Thank you to all of our heroes!

We must never forget our veterans. They unselfishly sacrificed so much for this great country. We should be forever grateful.

Wonderful quote and thought for Veterans Day. I think of my Dad on this day especially because he was a serviceman who dearly loved being in the Air Force and loved serving his country. He was so patriotic and I am proud to have the flag that draped his coffin. Everyone who has served or IS serving now are heroes.

Hugs, Pam

We remember the veterans of all our allied countries who fought for our freedom.

I don’t have a cat blog but look forward to yours every day. My furbaby is named Flopsy. I’m writing because of the quote you used by Randy Neugebauer. The man I knew with that name started his political career as my City Councilman (in Lubbock TX) and finished as my US Congressman. I just was wondering if that is who you quoted and how you happened upon his quote — it is not an everyday name.
I, too, miss Mau. He reminded me of my 15-year companion that I lost two years ago. Flopsy makes every day different and we are still getting to know each other (since February).

Thank you to our veterans.

A very important day.
Being Canadian, Petcretary also celebrates Remembrance Day, and wears a poppy as well.

What price our freedom was…and still is.


SpittytheKitty November 13, 2020 at 6:37 pm

Hi Kitties and Humans! And most of all, Miss Misty may–I have missed you so! XOXO

The Human’s dad was a marine. He served in the South Pacific for four long years during WWII, including at Guadalcanal, and then was sent to occupy Nagasaki after the second atomic bomb was dropped. He was a very brave and kind man and the Human feels lucky to be his daughter.

We are sorry if this is a duplicate–can’t seem to post a comment!


Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
