Take time out today to say thanks to the men and women of the Armed Forces who do the dangerous and noble job of protecting our freedoms. And think also of those who have given their lives in the line of duty for our country.
My son is active duty Army and this holiday always hits home for me. I bumped into a guy at the auto parts store wearing a t-shirt denoting a med unit. I shook his hand and thanked him for his service, mentioned my son to him. It was nice to see the smile on his face. Sometimes that's all it takes -- just a moment of recognition. Doesn't cost you a thing and it really means something to them.
Try it. Make a vet's day. It's good for your soul.
