Veterans Day 2014 1

Many of you, I expect, are nowhere near a computer today. Instead, you may be out honoring Veterans Day. Here’s hoping.

If you do happen to be scanning the blogosphere today, though, I offer just a few links … to Veterans Day activities.

First, right here in Phoenix is quite a large parade. It starts at 11 am, so get hopping.

Starting at the same time is the Tucson parade.

If you cannot attend either, or simply want something to do afterward, enjoy the detailed coverage that the Arizona Republic lent to the holiday.

And if you never saw it, you really should watch as Linus from the Peanuts recites “In Flanders Fields.”

Finally, here is an excellent video describing the creation and history of the Tomb of the Unknowns in Washington, DC.
