Happy Veterans Day – Thank A Veteran Today

Dad and flagFirst I want to say Happy Veterans Day to all our Veterans past and present and their families.
“All Gave Some…Some Gave All.”

Sometimes as Americans we get so caught up in the holiday and having time off from work that we forget the reason behind the holiday and why we even have it.

I wanted to share with you some thoughts and prayers for you and your family on this Veterans Day Holiday.

Childhood Memories of an Amazing Veteran

I remember growing up watching old WWII War movies with my Dad on Sunday
afternoons.

My Dad was a WWII Veteran and just loved watching the old John Wayne movies.

He used to remark that how funny it seemed to be watching movies about history that he lived. My Dad passed back in 2012Veterans-Day-Pictures-2015

(93) just a few days after my 60th birthday and I think I miss most those Sunday afternoons watching those old movies together.

It was many years after watching those movies with my Dad that myself and my 3 older brothers all became a part of the Vietnam Conflict.

We now became a part of this family of Americans that chose to give a part of themselves so others could enjoy the freedom we all so dearly love and want.

I finally knew what my father went through as a Soldier serving his country in the far reaches of the world.

I ended up serving over 10 years in both the Army and the Navy and being privileged to travel the world and discover what an incredible Nation we live in.

On this Veterans Day November 11th, 2015, please remember that all the great freedoms that you now enjoy were at the cost of someone else.

veterans poemIf you are a veteran or have veterans in your family I want to, from my heart Thank You For Your Service To This Great Country!

Take a Moment this Veterans Day in silence and give thanks to our Almighty God and Our Veterans!

The next time you enjoy some of your freedoms that most of us take for granted remember this;

It is the Soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard

It is the Soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.”

I leave you with this, the next time you come across a man or woman in uniform, make a point to stop and thank them for giving
their lives in service to you.

I want to leave you with these two great songs.  The first one is by Billy Ray Cyrus – “Some Gave All” and the second is by The Goads – “Veterans of the USA”, enjoy.

 

Have a Blessed and Wonderful Day with Family and Friends – God Bless You and God Bless This Great Country!

P.S.  Don't forget those who have and are serving in our police force and fire/rescue around this country.

Rovia Beats Expedia!

Rovia Beats Expedia!

Rovia Beats Expedia

Rovia Beats Expedia

YourWeekAway.com did a head to head comparison with Rovia vs Expedia based on mobile travel site comparision. Here is there Synopsis of the comparison: At the time we ran this mobile travel site comparison, Expedia is the most used booking agency on the planet based on the number of site visitors.

Rovia has just come off a win as the world's leading travel agency. So who better to launch our series of head-to-head matchups. Based on our user experiences and criteria (see below), we feel that Rovia's tablet features beat Expedia.

Below are a few of the results, but for the full review go here.

1) Format: ROVIA — Expedia has both a tablet browser format as well as a tablet app. Rovia offers just a browser-based mobile app. Our reviewers lean towards the browser option, preferring not to load a nearly identical app, which in Expedia's case, has no useful functionality (other than a copy of the itinerary) after the booking has been made.

2) Destination Options: ROVIA — Rovia wins this battle because their tablet site allows the user to choose from one-way, return or multiple destinations (the multi-destination option disappears on small-screen phones). Expedia only lets you pick one-way or return, and does so in a weird way later during the date selection process. We also like the fact that Rovia also allows you to select nearby airports as an additional option, which Expedia does not.

3) Departure or Arrival Time Preferences: ROVIA — Expedia does not allow this option until after the initial search, and then only as a sort option. Rovia allows this in one-hour increments but not as time blocks (i.e. morning)

4) Search Flexible Dates: DRAW — Neither Expedia or Rovia allow this option.

5) Non-Stop Flights: ROVIA — Expedia does not allow this option. Rovia offers the option to restrict the search to non-stop flights

6) Preferred Airline: ROVIA — Expedia does not allow this option. Rovia offers the option to pick any airline or limit it to certain airlines (up to 20)
