Veteran's Day

November 8, 2018

When I was younger, November 11, was simply my sister's birthday and nothing more. I didn't know many veterans and had no concept of the sacrifices they made for my freedom.

All of that has changed as I work here at the Home alongside the many veterans who have shared in America's struggle, who have shaped America's future.

For most of our veterans, the wars they have fought still remain vivid in their minds, even when other, simpler things are forgotten.

They have made a great sacrifice, and often they go un-thanked and un-honored.

I'll never forget the time that I thanked a veteran and he looked at me blankly. "For what?"

He had gotten so used to being taken for granted. He had gotten used to giving without receiving.

This isn't right. These brave men and woman need our respect, whether we agree with all of America's policies or not.

This Sunday is Veteran's Day. Find a veteran and thank them.
