I know Friday Night Fights is headed to the Prize Fight for the Karate Kicks tournament. I barely took part and I didn’t win any fights. And I brought a ninja and everything! I do want to encourage my readers to vote for the tournament winner, but I have a tradition to maintain.

Veterans Day is when we in the United States honor those who have served in wartime. While Memorial Day honors those who lost their lives on the battlefield, today we give thanks to those who survived, which includes family and friends of mine, so it’s very important to me. For this year’s tribute I have two short videos.  One is about the history of this day, formerly Armistice Day, and the other features a few Vets who are really no different than you or I. They just chose to serve their country.

I hope that if you saw a Veteran or know one that you thanked them for their service and sacrifice. They put their lives on the line so we could live free and they deserve better treatment than they get at times.
