Veterans Day 2010


United States Flag

There aren’t too many subjects that are all but guaranteed to make me emotional, but America, patriotism, and those who serve in the Armed Forces are near the top of that list. I have known many who have defended this country and I am awed by their willingness to sacrifice, and the scale of that sacrifice, so that the rest of us can enjoy freedom. “Thank you” is entirely inadequate, but must be said. I am frequently appalled at the way we treat our vets, even today. They richly deserve our highest honors and unwavering gratitude, regardless of whether we approve of the war they are fighting or, indeed, of war in general.

So, to those who have served our country, and by extension me and my family, THANK YOU. I am deeply grateful.
