I have the greatest respect for all the brave men and women who have served our country. My great grandfathers and grandfathers were all veterans. I went to school with brave men who fought in the recent wars and I worked in a veteran’s hospital, where I saw the physical and mental aftermath of battle. Although our thanks shouldn’t be reserved just for one day, make the extra effort today to honor and thank all those who have served in the armed forces.
