I plan on spending the day staring at my phone and using my prodigious mental powers to make it ring. Hopefully your day is a bit more reverential.
Also, I miss my grandparents. I miss all four of my grandparents, but to the best of my knowledge my paternal grandfather (the source of the “Luther” in my pen name) wasn’t ever in the service, and my maternal grandfather (the pair pictured above are my mom’s parents) was in Patton’s Third Army, so he’s never far from my thoughts on Veterans Day.
IMPORTANT EDIT: I am informed by reliable sources that my paternal grandfather was in the Navy, although I believe he remained Stateside. His rank on his discharge papers is listed as Hospital Apprentice First Class, and he was discharged in April of 1946.
