Today is a very important day. Today is Veterans Day. No, not the V-E-T Day. A veteran is someone who served in the military. These people keep our country safe so we can have warm beds and plenty of peanut butter. Mom is a little sad today, because a close friend of her family's died earlier this week. He was a veteran, serving in the Navy. Today is the funeral. She can't go, but Grandma and Grandpa are there. Mom's uncle is there, too. He is a veteran, too. He fought in Vietnam. If you find a veteran, make sure you give them a big sloppy kiss to say "Thank you."

Of course, there are also dog veterans. Dogs have very important jobs in the military. If you find one, let them sniff you just a little longer.

Also, today is a special day because all of the numbers are the same! 11-11-11. I don't know what all of that means, but Mom says it will never happen for another forty-billion hundred years.
