    99 year old Harold Percival, World War II veteran, had no family to attend his funeral - until an appeal. His funeral was today 11/11 at 11am.

    This has happened with another very senior veteran. RIP Harold.

    I was standing in line at Starbucks on Monday, and the lady taking my order asked me if I was a veteran, it took me back a little because I've never been asked. "Why as a matter of fact I am," I answered, she thanked me for my service and said my coffee was on the house. It made my day.

    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: ‘Veterans Day Makes Me Sick’

    MSNBC host Chris Hayes is under fire today after claiming he is personally disgusted by Veterans Day.

    During a segment on Morning Joe this morning the bespectacled pundit shocked hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough with his unorthodox views on the holiday, which he sees as a celebration of the military-industrial complex.

    "I don't know about you, but Veterans Day makes me sick," he told the panel. "It's just such a jingoistic, macho display of violence and power. I saw a parade while biking to work this morning and I literally felt like vomiting.

    "All these little children were lined up with little American flags. I couldn't help but feel we are just brainwashing them into thinking that violent conflict is somehow the answer to our problems as a nation.

    "I mean besides defeating Nazism, ending the Holocaust, stopping genocide in Kosovo, protecting global trade from piracy, ending communism, ending slavery, securing our independence, killing Osama Bin Laden and distributing aid abroad after natural disasters, what have American armed forces ever done for this country?"
