VIEWS OF A FARM BOY
"So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."" (ESV) (1 Corinthians 13:13)
The first Armistice Day was observed November 11, 1919 to mark the first anniversary of the end of World War 1. Then 35 years later, President Dwight Eisenhower officially changed the holiday desigination to "Veterans Day". In so doing, he included all veterans of all times who sacraficed (many with his/her life) to protect our freedom. Veterans Day, November, 2019, is a special milestone event. You do the math--35 years of Armistice Day and 65 years of Veterans Day make this November a 100 year occasion.
I think Ray "Bubba" Sorenson does such a wonderful job paying tribute to our veterans. Above: Dallas County Freedom Rock in Minburn. Below: Black Hawk County Freedom Rock in Cedar Falls. Notice--each has an Iowa story.
My View for the Month: I published my first "Views of a Farm Boy" January, 2006. I was semi-retired and decided to do some things that I had put off for many years. Most of my adventures have had an Iowa connection. I was, and continue to be, amazed at the changes in technology in my lifetime. I decided to build my own website so I could share my adventures with our family and dear friends. I am so thankful for each of you.
