Do more than thank a Veteran today: offer them a job, help them out with education, mentor them, invite them for dinner. Some Vets think that their best days are behind them, that the days they served in the military were their highest points in life. They (We) have so much more left to give. We want to keep serving. Recognize us for the heros, parents, teachers, business men and women, police officers… we are now and not once were. We don’t just want freebies on Veterans’ Day, (even I’ll never turn down a nice Starbucks coffee if offered! ) we want to a chance to be great again. Semper Fidelis.
