Honoring Veterans Day. Here the memorial to New York’s 107th Infantry Regiment of the National Guard, formed in 1917 and disbanded in 1993. Also known as the Silk Stocking regiment, which might account for its location on 67th Street and Central Park. Silk stockings don’t count for much in battle, though, and these men fought as bravely as the many others, including my own father and step father in Korea and Vietnam. My husband, too, served jn the US Army’s 3d Infantry, though he did not see combat and does not consider himself a veteran per se. He was lucky. Prayers for our brothers and sisters in service and for peace on this solemn day. .
