Veteran’s Day 2011

A veteran – whether active duty, retired, National Guard or Reserve – is someone who at one point in his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

To all my fellow veterans:

Have a good Veteran’s Day. We all should take time to remember the fallen and continue to support those still serving.

HOOAH!
