Veterans Day 2017 Card From Reilly And Camille

PS Combat and service animals count as veterans as much as people (including military spouses) do.

The Air Force, A Loving Reilly, And Veteran's Day (Plus An Upcoming Belated National Pumpkin Day Card)

"Momma" is proud that:
  1. The head of the Air Force Academy, Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, condemns bigotry
  2. Reilly refused to nosebutt her when she, in light of Lt. Gen. Silveria's admonition to the Air Force, asked her whether she hated anybody just because of what they look like, their beliefs, etc.. At one point, though, Reilly nosebutted "Momma" because she assumed that "Momma" wanted her to nosebutt when she mistook a refusal to nosebutt as an affirmative answer and asked the question again ("Momma" culpa!)


Apparently, though, Reilly loves "Momma" (She gave "Momma" kisses.) and hates everybody else (including "Momma—or at least she was tired of "Momma" bothering her with questions!).

As Veteran's Day approaches, meanwhile, "Momma" and Reilly thank the Air Force and other veterans (including active-duty ones. Once a person in the United States Armed Forces, always a veteran—except for the ones like treasonous Bowe Bergdahl and very-much-self-exaggerating John Garofalo.)

(By the way, Reilly—while she may love everybody—doesn't like everybody, and she would certainly dislike those like Bowe Bergdahl on a daily basis as much as she dislikes "Momma" on some days!)

PS Reilly did get her earned pumpkin for both being patient with "Momma" over the past few weeks and National Pumpkin Day,  and she will (God willing) be in a belated National Pumpkin Day card.

Quick Promised-Post-Cycle Break: "When Did This Biting Habit Start?" & Memorial Day

"Momma" thought that Reilly's biting of her hand was maybe her teeth nudging against it when she opened her mouth and nudged it on "Momma"'s hand to get her to resume petting her. Two bites and a still-hurting-albe-with-no-blood-or-significant-teeth-marks hand later, "Momma" realizes that Reilly has a "Keep giving me scritches!" biting habit—and "Momma" does have a triangle of three now-fading small teeth marks on her pinky. ("Reilly! when did this biting habit start?")

Meanwhile, a Memorial Day card is planned to be forthcoming. Also, even though Memorial Day is meant especially for MIA, KIA, and DOW¹ members of the United States Armed Forces², "Momma" and Reilly also observe Memorial Day in honor of active-duty U.S. Armed Forces personnel, and in honor and memory of reservist and veteran U.S. Armed Forces personnel³⁴—after all, all active-duty, reservist, and veterans in good standing³ have and died every day when they lay and laid their lives on the line, especially since they haven't and hadn't been guaranteed tomorrows.


¹ Died Of Wounds (Including United States Armed Forces members whom committed suicide or otherwise died to a mental-illness flareup due to post-service aftermaths
² Including reservists and veterans—since, e.g., many do go on multiple tours of duty
³ Including honorably-discharged and mistakenly- and maliciously-dishonorably-discharged veterans alike, including racistly-dishonorably-discharged World War Two veterans.
⁴ Including one of the people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly, whom became an Air Force Member in the year before Vietnam ended.

"Momma" and Reilly Thank The Veterans, Both Active-Duty And Non-Active-Duty Veterans

Remember that "Momma" even originally wanted a male puppy and to name him after Pfc. Bernard Stanley Czarnecki, WW2, DOW (בנימין שמריה בן יהודה יוחנן ושרה אסנת צהרנצקי, ז''ל). As for Reilly, she is a "great-great-grandniece" to Pfc. Bernard S. Czarnecki, and:


  1. A "grandniece" of a retired Air Force Colonel
  2. A "grandniece" of an almost-Vietnam War vet ("almost" because the war ended just as he was called to duty)
  3. A "once-removed cousin" of two Marines (one of them being an in-law cousin) and two Army soldiers (with one being a First Lieutenant, MSC)
  4. The "dogter" of a friend of an Air Force veteran, whom she has yet to meet
  5. The "dogter" of a friend of a Marine's aunt, whom she's already met
  6. The "great-great-grandniece" of a late VFW Commander and ACE member whom served in the European Theater and countless other WW2 veterans, including Pfc. Czarnecki (See above.)
  7. Countless other veterans

Many of Reilly's "relatives" are from the only state outside of Maryland in which Reilly has been. So is one of "Momma"'s friends whom was in the Air Force.
