Veteran's Day

Please take a moment (or many) today to thank a Veteran for their service to our country. Maybe you know someone currently serving or someone who devoted years of their life to defend the United States. Whether you believe in the wars that are currently going on or the wars that have been fought in the past... you must believe in the dedication, devotion and selflessness of the men and women who fight. They sacrifice time away from their families, suffer through harsh conditions and face mortal dangers... and they do it all willingly in the name of America.

Please, call, hug, donate or otherwise express your gratitude to a soldier, a sailor, an airmen or a marine today.

I gave my thanks a little early. The night of the wedding there was also a gathering of veterans who had fought in both WWII and Korea. they were Navy. I told them thanks when I saw some on Sunday morning.
