Veterans Day
Some people confuse Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a day for remembering and
honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country. Veterans Day doesn't exclude those who
died, but it is the day set aside to thank and honor ALL THOSE WHO SERVED OUR COUNTRY HONORABLY
during war and times of peace. Although we should remember all that served, on Veterans Day we should
thank the LIVING veterans and honor all those who served during war time.

The beautiful color of Autumn isn't going to last much longer. It has already turned rather gray in the middle
and higher elevations of the park. Here are some images of Christopher Tobias during a break from serving
our country in the U. S. Army. With four overseas tours of duty in the Marines and Army already under his
belt while our nation has been and still is at war, lets just hope that he and everyone else that has served  
our country in any way are taken better care of than many, if not a majority of our current day veterans.

These were taken not long ago on Abrams Creek (top photo) and Little River above Elkmont (bottom photo).
