Today is marked as a special occasion where we get to give our thanks to those who have put on a uniform and served our country in its armed forces. I have been blessed to have a great number of people in my life who have ante’d up and stepped into the life of a soldier over the years – from teachers to family, friends and coworkers. To each and every one of you – thank you.
However, today, November 11th, should not be the only day that we celebrate our veterans. Each and every day, we have veterans who have to live with the sacrifices they made – mentally and physically. These people have devoted their lives to forever being America’s soldier – America’s warrior.
I encourage each and every person, today and every day, to think about how you’re giving back to those that serve (past and present) in our military. As the problems of this world get more complex, so will the life of a soldier. Even if it’s just a “thank you” or buying someone coffee on days that aren’t sanctioned, do it. It doesn’t have to be a big scene, it doesn’t even have to be a thing. It should just be something you do, if you’re truly thankful for the sacrifices made by our military personnel.
Again – to all of you who have served, thank you – today, and every day.
