Veterans' Day 2015

A very foggy morning this morning, Veterans' Day,  and since there was little to see it was a very introspective walk - a time to think of relatives and friends no longer here who gave their lives.
"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." – Mark Twain
Yesterday was the 240th  "birthday" of the United States Marine Corps and the celebration was for and with friends departed and still here.   Semper Fi, guys.
