Veterans Day

To thank a vet, it’s as simple as this

Many different Americans, many different kinds of Americans, served in the different military services for many different reasons in many different ways with many different effects; but they all raised their right hands and swore the same oaths to defend the one thing that all individual, different Americans have in common.

Yeah, I think a silent “Thanks” would be appropriate, today.

    There simply cannot be an adequate way to say thank you on this day.

    I decided to re-post my “To a Vietnam Vet…I’ve Never Met” from 2011 if anyone wishes to have a look.
