Happy Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran's Day -- the day where we should remember all veterans from all conflicts. The men and women that serve in our military have a tough job to do, day in and day out, and we should thank these people for their sacrifice to keep America safe and secure from our enemies. I have relatives who have served in the military. My great-grandfather served in the trenches of World War I. My grandfather served as a Navy transport pilot during World War II. My father served in Vietnam as a company clerk. My uncle served in the Marines in Vietnam. My other uncle joined the Navy in 1981, and put in 26 years in the Navy in naval intelligence. Marcie's brother is in Afghanistan now; an Army Ranger that signed up to serve on September 13, 2001. So it's not like we don't have the utmost respect for the military.

I ran across this video not too long ago, and it still chokes me up seeing it. They have a duty to serve this nation, and at the very least we should show them our appreciation whenever the chances come up. Also, Project Valour-IT ends today through Soldier's Angels. They help our wounded soldiers when they come home so drop by and give them a contribution.

If you see a soldier today, thank them for their service. If you feel bold enough, buy them lunch, or dinner, or even a beer. Tell them how much you appreciate their service, wish them good luck, God-speed, and may they be safe in the execution of their job.

Also, don't forget to fly your flag today in honor of those who serve, have served, and have given the ultimate sacrifice. Thanks to these people we are a safe and secure nation. The job ain't easy, but they're up to the task.
