Among the memorials planned for Thursday in the nation's capital:

A Defense Department World War II commemoration wreath laying is set at the World War II Memorial.

A wreath laying is planned at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

A special U.S. Army 1st Cavalry Division Association wreath-laying ceremony also is scheduled at the World War II Memorial.

I drove past most of this on my way in just now. The Mall is teeming with veterans coming from or going to memorials and ceremonies. It's a perfect day to be outside doing that sort of thing, and I'm so glad they don't have to slog through crap weather to pay their respects.

If you run into a veteran today, say thank you.

Thanks, Dad. And Steve. And Colonel Smith. And Uncle Rick. And Marilyn. And Grandpa Doss. And Ryan. And Michael. And Pauline.
