Thank you.  You know who you are.  Here was the first Veterans Day proclamation.

Not sure if USS Carter Hall (LSD-50) is in town for 11/11, but here’s the water side tribute.  Have any of the others of the Harpers Ferry-class visited NYC’s sixth boro?

Why today?  It goes back to 1919, a century ago.  Here’s what the silence after the armistice sounded like and the bird songs were again audible.
