I hope my 2014 Veteran's Day at Gettysburg will be as special as the one I had last year. I'll be there for a few days and I can't wait. (Of course!) Last year was made special by something more than just being there where so many of our brave men (and a few women) in blue and gray fell. That would be reason enough... and the National Cemetery where so many of them remain would make it special, too. But it's more... last year as our trip was starting, we saw an eagle soaring from the local mountaintop to the river, grand as could be. I've lived within 30 miles of where I am now my whole life and I've only ever seen one other eagle... years ago and at the very summit of another mountain. Special Veteran's Day that was!
