Veterans Day


Today is Veterans Day and across the nation, millions of Americans are remembering the men and women of the armed forces that have sacrificed themselves for God and Country. Today is not just a day that banks and schools are closed. In reality, it's not even a holiday. It's a time to refelct and realize the reason that we live free in this great nation is because of the countless men and women who have served this country since it's beginning.

Today is a day that each and every one of us should make a mental note to do something for these good Americans. Please take the time to recognize these veterans, be it a phone call to a veteran that you might know or just a plain "thank you" to a man or woman in uniform. You have no idea how the warmth and love that a simple gesture like this means to a veteran.

Happy Veteran's Day, Jimmy. I know I'm a few days late, but that's nothing new with me.
My dad, brother and sister are all vets...and vets are, indeed, a special breed of folks.
