I never know whether to say “Happy” Veterans Day…
My father and brother retired from the Air Force. I served 14 years active duty, 7 in the Guard, and retired from the Army. My sister served in the Army and Air Force Reserves and retired. So, as a family, we’re a patriotic group. We gave years of our lives.
Here’s a shout-out to all veterans who served. I like these words: Serve, Service. They mean something still. I think more people ought to serve, whether it’s in the military, the Peace Corps, or serving their communities directly. It teaches you about responsibility and discipline. See the world. See how others live, and experience how they think. It’s a great education.
So, take a minute today and say thank you to those who gave something of themselves to their country. It’s old-fashioned, maybe, but it never gets old.
