Jim's Baseball Notes for Tuesday November 11, 2014

Jim's Baseball Notes for Tuesday November 11, 2014

From Robert Laurence Binyon's "For the Fallen" - the "Ode to Rembrance"...
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

From the Kohima Monument in Myanmar (ex-Burma) - attributed to John Maxwell Edmonds;
When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say,
For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today

Don't balance our budget by cutting expenditures on our veterans;
