"Veterans Day" is nice, but I've always preferred the original name.

Every November 11, I post, somewhere on the web, the URL of my Dad's WW1 diary and other papers and photos located at the University of Kansas. http://www.kancoll.org/articles/cruzan/c_credits.htm It's my dedication to him, Pvt. Benjamin Edgar Cruzan, 1895-1986. It was so late in life that I realized how much I learned from him.


Never before or since,
As changed itself to past
Without a word - the men
Leaving the gardens tidy,
The thousands of marriages
Lasting a little while longer:
Never such innocence again.


Philip Larkin
