It’s no secret that American Veterans saved the world in playing the most major part to end World War II.
But our gratitude toward them seems to hide in the closet for most of the year; then it’s brought forth profusely on military holidays, and at other celebrations with our own families.
Let’s go more public for our Vets — Yes, capital “V” !
Did you thank a Vet yet this year on any day other than today — Memorial Day, 2018?
Thank you, Veterans of America, for carrying our flag into battle and securing my life as it exists today! I was six months old when my own father (1924-2011) returned from a world of war to a life of peace.
What would you like to write about concerning veterans, or a Vet in your family?
