Today is Veterans Day in the US
So just for that we have something a little different
Today's pinups are classic.. from a collection of patriotic cards that I found on the web
I don't have any photo credits or any contact info

U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 12, 1919. The United States Congress passed a concurrent resolution seven years later on June 4, 1926, requesting the President issue another proclamation to observe November 11 with appropriate ceremonies. An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday; "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day'."
In 1953, an Emporia, Kansas, shoe store owner named Al King had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, not just those who served in World War I. King had been actively involved with the American War Dads during World War II. He began a campaign to turn Armistice Day into "All" Veterans Day. The Emporia Chamber of Commerce took up the cause after determining that 90% of Emporia merchants as well as the Board of Education supported closing their doors on November 11, 1953, to honor veterans. With the help of then-U.S. Rep. Ed Rees, also from Emporia, a bill for the holiday was pushed through Congress. President Dwight Eisenhower signed it into law on May 26, 1954.
Congress amended this act on November 8, 1954, replacing "Armistice" with Veterans, and it has been known as Veterans Day since.

This is my new routine...
Sunday afternoon into the evening I go looking around for my pinups picks for the week
Some I request as MySpace friends and some I don't
Andrea Grant I did indeed request
Right up there with the traditional pinup and the modern pinup is the Noir Femme Fatale
The pics of Andrea that I am posting show you exactly what that can mean in the modern era
These pics show the kind of girl it just might be worth your soul for
