Happy Veteran's Day #5 -- November 11, 2011

Happy Veterans Day to all the veterans out there. Thank you for your service to your country.

This is the 93rd anniversary of Armistice Day. There is only one surviving veteran, Florence Green of the RAF. The last combat veteran was Claude Choules of the Royal Navy, who died in May. The last US veteran was Frank Buckles, who died in February.

The poster is by Howard Chandler Christy.  Today, the young lady could join the Navy.  Or the Army.  Or the Air Force.  Or the Coast Guard.

11/11/11 - interesting date.
