Day 317: Thanked The Veterans That I Know
Yesterday was Veteran's Day here in the United States, but since it fell on a Sunday, it was widely observed as a holiday. I have many friends, family members, fraternity brothers, and acquaintances that have served in the Armed Forces, so it is really important to me that these heroes see their due. I wish I could go around and buy them all a beer or a meal, but that isn't possible because of distance and financial constraints. However, I did feel it was important to let them know that every single day of the year, not just on Veteran's Day, I am thankful for the sacrifices they have made. So today, for my random act of kindness, I thanked the veterans that I know for their service and for making the world a safer place for my family. Since I don't know every veteran out there, and I think there might be a few who read this blog, I want to say "Thank you" to all of you as well. You all personify courage and what it really means to be a hero.
