Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend – mine was interesting for sure with a lot of family and activities. There was a great UFC fight on Saturday night on FOX (which was super cool!) and of course some amazing football yesterday to really round out the TV watching weekend 😉
Friday of course was Veteran’s Day, and Mission Repair was invited to present our Military Vehicle at Clear Creek Elementary School in Shawnee, Kansas. I arrived early Friday morning and got her set up:
Then as students and teachers arrived (that’s my Librarian on the left!) they lined up for pictures and a “tour” of the Deuce and a Half on the way into their first ever Veteran’s Day assembly.
The school put on an honorary display of thanks and remembrance for many local veterans (active and not) for the entire school. It was very cool. Unfortunately, my father was too sick to attend, but was honored as well to the group. It was a special day and I was even able to deliver a brand new American Flag to my father later that day. I know he appreciated it.
Unfortunately, there’s only one day a year that’s labeled “Veteran’s Day” but every day (and every chance that I get) I want to thank all of our veterans for their service.
Have a great Monday! Ryan
