Veterans Day 2010

November 11, 2010

I want to thank all of our Military veterans who gave so much for our nation.

I know a man who served in two wars across half a dozen countries and countless battles, simply talking to him and hearing his stories is one of my life’s great honors. Today I will shake his hand, look him in the eye and thank him for what he did for me and all of us. You see he didn’t get drafted, he volunteered to go “Over There” twice and he got wounded twice, to this day he bears the scars that bought our freedom, my freedom. If you know a man like him today, whether his wars were 70 years ago or if they just came home today, shake their hand, look them in the eye and thank them for what they have given to you and to us all.
