Veteran's Day 2012

Sub Tuum.

This Sunday, though officially observed Monday this year, is one of my favorite days of the year. It is a day to honor those who have served in the armed forces. It is Veteran's Day. Be sure to thank a veteran, even if you are one. I have yet to meet a veteran who couldn't name at least one other person who did more than he. And remember those who fell in the service of something greater than themselves, for that is really what military service is about. Wear a poppy flower and remember those who survived, but are now no longer with us.
