Last week we celebrated Veteran's Day. If you didn't have a chance to see the video I posted on the holiday, check it out now. It is worth the four minutes of time (but have a tissue box nearby).
When our neighbors saw the Veteran's Day post, they called to invite Tom and I to the annual Military Ball last Friday evening.
In the center of the dance floor was an empty table with the chairs tilted in as though they were reserved. At each place setting was a hat from each of the major military branches -- Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. In addition our first responders -- police, fire, and emergency medical -- were also honored.
One of our other neighbors then spoke about the Vietnam War Memorial that he helped to create at the Colorado Welcome Center. He also led the cake cutting ceremony where people from all of the military and first responders helped to cut eight cakes to serve for dessert.
It was a beautiful dedication to the people who fight for our freedoms. I was honored to be invited, and especially excited to have such a handsome date. :)
It was Perfect!
