    I was out in Arizona for a long weekend over Veteran's Day. Went to the MN Wild hockey game on Saturday night against the Phoenix Coyotes (Wild won). Sunday we attended the NASCAR race at ISM Speedway.

    Monday we drove up to Anthem, AZ to the Anthem War Memorial and their Veteran's Day program. Very nice program - the oldest veteran attending was 101 years old.

    For those that don't know about the Anthem War Memorial...

    The memorial's five white pillars represent the nation's military branches and are arranged in Department of Defense order of precedence: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Each pillar has an elliptical opening that slants downward toward The Great Seal of the United States. On Veterans Day – November 11 – the design allows the sun's rays to spotlight the Great Seal at 11:11 AM Mountain Standard Time.

    So here are a few pics I took:

    Anthem DSC_4288.jpg Anthem DSC_4291.jpg

    The next pic was a few minutes before 11:11:

    Anthem DSC_4293.jpg

    And then at 11:11...

    Anthem DSC_4296.jpg

    For anyone is the Phoenix area on a future Veteran's Day, I highly recommend going to Anthem. It was worth the 30 minute drive to see the War Memorial and the city runs an excellent program honoring all Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine and Coast Guard veterans.
