To Honor Those Who Serve...
The image you see above is the cover of the Standard Oil Bulletin, September 1918.
The cover, with artwork by Stanley McNeill was dedicated to "our boys" in the service. The bulletin listed inside all of the names of all of the Standard Oil Company of California employees who were, at that time, currently "in the military or naval service of the Government". Today we should all honor those men and women who are now serving, or who in the past have served our country as veterans. We celebrate and salute them.
And, speaking of celebrating veterans, can I even TELL you how excited I was for J.R. Martinez last Monday on Dancing With The Stars?! His great moves on the dance floor earned him perfect scores from all three judges for both of his dance numbers with partner Karina Smirnoff.
I was a longtime fan of All My Children, and therefore I was able to watch him from his very first appearance through to the end of the show's run on ABC. I am so enormously impressed with this young man and all he has been through and accomplished! I was so tickled for him when I watched DWTS on Monday night. Well done, J.R., well DONE!
