What a great post. I think we all need to take a step back and think for a minute or two of how privlidged we all are for the men and women who protect this great country we live in regardless of politics and individuals opinions. We would not be who or where we are with out the men and women in uniform.
I have always tried to teach my boys that when ever you see anyone in uniform, stop, take your hat off and say " Thank you for all you do and I appreciate your service to our country". It means a lot to me to see my two boys do this on their own. Although I have nerver served, I have other family members who have, and again without THEIR commitment to OUR country, the things we sometimes take for granted, would not exist.
Happy Verterns Day to all of you out there, and THANK YOU FOR PROTECTING OUR COUNTRY!!!
Please enjoy your day.
