I called my twenty-something-ish boss yesterday to see if we'd be getting paid today, as we are every other Thursday. You know, because it's a holiday...?
She asked, slightly bewildered, "What holiday is it?"
I might have let my disbelief show a little too much in my response of, "Veteran's Day!", because she quickly apologized to me.
To my Dad, my uncle, both my brothers. To all currently serving, and those who've honorably served in the past.
Thank you. Thank you for your service. Thank you for keeping us safe, and helping make this country great.
To everyone else out there, take a moment and thank a vet. Take a moment to reflect on their sacrifices. Be grateful.
Like we really should be EVERY DAY, not just on November 11th.
