It’s Veteran’s Day–a day to give thanks

Today is the day we honor our veterans and active-duty soldiers for their service to our country.  I encourage you to take a moment and reach out to those who have served or are serving this great nation and tell them how much you appreciate their service to our country.

One of my close friends, a gentleman named Hank up in Reno, NV, served on PT boats in the South Pacific during World War II.  I feel lucky to know him–a lot of people like Hank didn’t make it back home.

Hank claims the “heroes” are those who have died in service.  We don’t agree on this point.  The heroes are those who serve, not simply those who die.
