Veterans Day 2012 - Saluting those who served both there and here!

Today is Veteran's Day - the 11th day of the 11th month - a day no American should ever forget!

I salute my father, Chuck Galligar, Jr. - a man I've always held in deep respect and who served his country the only way he knew how - honorably and with dignity!

I also salute my mother, Vivian Galligar - who reminded me the other day - "I feel like I served right along with your dad - after all, I was the one left behind while he was off doing his duty - so I felt I was doing my duty keeping home and family together for him until he got back!"   She's absolutely right!

I also agree with your mom. I'm sure it helped your dad a lot knowing she was keeping things going on the home front!
