Thank a Veteran – Today and Every Day

November 11th, 2008 by InfantryMom

This post was delayed by a struggle for supremacy between myself and my laptop with a new hard drive. Thankfully, I won in the end and it’s working again.

Today is Veteran’s Day in the U.S. It’s a day for remembering the sacrifices and service of the men and women who have and are serving in the armed forces. It’s a job accepted by too few with rewards that are far too few. The pay isn’t much, the danger is high. The hours are open and they have to leave for months or years away from their family on a moment’s notice.

Yet the job they do is key to our country’s survival.

I don’t think veterans are as respected or as thanked as they should be. Several close friends are veterans and they are some of the most usassuming people I know. If I’d not already known they were veterans, I’d never have known to thank them.

So thank a veteran today but try to do it every day. One day a year is far to little thanks.
