Al's Rantings

A view of the world from a hillbilly perspective.

Location: Virginia

I was born and went to school in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, in southern West Virginia. After graduating from college, I got married, and began working in Bristol, TN. I have have various jobs from Tennessee to up state New York and a few points between. Now I work in West Virginia. Some day, I want to live in Alaska.

Veterans Too

Today, I thanked the veterans that I worked with. I thanked them for what they had done for me and for their service to our great country. I pass this marker at least twice per day.

Confederate and Union soldiers are also veterans. This statue was dedicated in 1901. There were people alive who remembered the Civil War. It is hard to imagine 10,000 people gathered for this occasion. A great celebration it must have been.

Thanks veterans!
