Hello everyone, Veteran’s Day is almost upon us. It’s actually on November 11th each year, which means that it lands on a Sunday in 2012. When it lands on a weekend, the Federal Holiday gets moved to Monday so please be aware of that…there might be some businesses like your bank and the Post Office that will be closed on Monday November 12th. It’s these kind of holidays that sneak up on us so try to keep that in mind if you’re expecting that USPS package to arrive next week!
At Mission Repair we’ve made this holiday a pertinent one- we loan out our company 1968 Deuce and a Half to a local school for the day as part of the Veteran “theme” that they use. It just so happens that the school I’m describing will have their Veteran festivities and assembly tomorrow so I need to fire the beast up and get it up to Clear Creek Elementary School tomorrow morning before the kids arrive! It’ll stay there all day for pictures and as a rolling memorial to all of the Veterans that will visit the school tomorrow.
Last year at this time my father, Gary Arter, a Veteran of the Vietnam War was honored at the same assembly but was too sick to attend…and now that it’s been almost a year since he passed away this assembly and event has become even more special and I have a personal stake in making sure these kids understand that sacrifices that many have made to keep our country safe.
So if you’re lucky enough to see me driving around Kansas City tomorrow, feel free to give me a “honk”. You can’t miss the truck, it’ll be the ginormous vehicle that’s as menacing as it looks in the picture. If not, stop by our office sometime and I’ll give you a tour and take you for a ride. It sits in our warehouse ready for action!
