I 2721 WASHINGTON STREET JULIAN, CA 92036 (Next To Town Hall) www'julianmedicaL cm OPEN MONDAY - FRIDAY 8:00AM TO 5PM -- 24 HOUR ANSWERING SERVICE ons By Bill Fink Veterans Day There isn't a profession in this country that will put life and limb at risk more than that of the combat soldier. For little else, other than service to our country, the combat Veteran has served this nation since it's inception. Be they volunteers or conscripts, they have fought the British, the Barbary Sultans, the Kaiser, Japanese Imperialism, and Hitler's Nazis. They fought in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. Our soldiers fought our most devastating war, with terrible sacrifice, in the War of Rebellion. Our Citizen Soldier has fought nasty secret engagements all over the world and we, as a people depend on them in the worldwide fight against terrorism. Friday, November 11th is Veterans Day. It is a time to honor our Veterans' service to this nation. It was first proposed by Woodrow Wilson to honor returning WWI troops after the Armistice with Germany in 1918. It has been called Armistice Day, Remembrance Day, and ultimately declared a national holiday in 1938 honoring Veterans of the First World War. During Dwight Eisenhower's term in 1954 along with urging from Congress, Veterans Day became the official title and was extended to honor all Veterans. The end of WWl was to take effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Because of the on again off again negotiations between the Allies and Germans, maneuvering, shelling and fighting continued to the bitter end with nearly 11,000 casualties and over 2,700 killed on the final day. It is generally held that the last American killed, was Henry Gunther in a charge against Germans with his death occurring sixty seconds prior to the Armistice. In this town, the largest gathering of Veterans will occur at the American Legion Post. At our Post we have men and women Veterans of every engagement since WWII. There are Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guarders who have retired their former uniforms and now come together as one unit and now, proudly wear their crisp, blue and white uniforms as members of The American Legion. They will honor fallen comrades and celebrate the Veterans that came before. The Sons of the American Legion and the Ladies Auxiliary will be there to honor "our" Julian Veterans. Veterans Day is a holiday that appears to be losing significance. At one time, there was vast public involvement in war efforts. Huge numbers of military personnel were overseas in Europe and Asia fighting for our home front's very life. No one was unaffected by our national effort. Our first modern era war in Viet Nam was brought into the living room and was surreal on its affect on the American public. While the war was politically unpopular, over fifty thousand Americans lost their lives and hundreds of thousands of others that fought, suffer the universal scars of war that Veterans since time immemorial must bear. The difference is, they are Americans and they stood when our nation called. This is what has happened in this great land since those rickety ships landed in Plymouth and Jamestown. The brave men and women among us have never shrunk from a fight. They have always stood, taken the fight to. our enemies, have been blooded and scarred, but have always endured. And thank God for them, and thanks to us as a nation that will not shrink from evil. So November 11th is the day we say thank you to the Veterans that are with us and to those who are not who have fought the fight. At our Post in Julian at the corner of Washington and 2nd, we will honor our Veterans on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, 2011 with a potluck November 9, 2011 celebration. The public is invited and if you can bring a dish and thank a Vet. There will be a 21- gun salute, our military's highest honor, a solemn invocation and a great celebration of one of our most important holidays. Always remember that, "Soldiers never die until they are forgotten." Let's not forget. My Exciting Week This week I spent two days in Wyoming visiting with a wonderful young writer and his even more interesting dog. I learned stuff about dogs that I never even thought to think about. Then a nice day was spent with a man of God who had lost his faith. His journey to rediscover God and His goodness, gave me insights that increased my faith. The most lovely couple of days I spent in Guernsey, England. I learned how these hardy, farmers, fishermen and village people survived the German occupation of their island during WWlI. I had visited these same people a few years ago and enjoyed my second visit as much as my first. Last week I also had a spine tingling ride through Russia with spy's shooting at me and doing my best to evade the bad guys and having difficulty discerning the good from the bad. I was so glad when I finally got back from Potevska all safe and sound. Then a couple of days with the bounty hunter Stephanie Plum in New Jersey and if you have ever%pent time with her you know her car or apartment is going to get blown up and she is going to be shot at ..... repeatedly. Whew, it was so exciting! For a change of pace a couple of days were spent with the Mormon pioneers. It made me appreciate what an easy life I have. A day was spent with a lady who could not forget ANYTHING ever. Can you imagine what that is like? I never realized what a blessing it is to forget stuff, and at my age I'm really blessed in that respect. To top it all off another visit with the good priest from Mitford. All of these exciting travels and I never left my cottage in Julian. I am so thankful for Miss Tait and Mrs Swycaffer and all the other teachers I had in Julian Elementary school who taught me to read and to love reading. The whole world is at my fingertips with no worries about being blown up by real life terrorists, or losing my passport, or being held up at the gas station, or, any of the other things that might happen to me should I venture out into the danger filled old world! I just lay back in my Lazy Boy let the warm sunshine fall over me and enjoy adventures, meet interesting people, and journey to exciting places and usually have a little nap on route PETS OF THE WEEK Serena is a 5 month old female Chocolate Standard Poodle/Pit Bull Mix.
