Today is Veterans Day. Originally called Armistice Day, it was initiated to remember the end of “The Great War” (aka the First World War) and those who served. Later, it was expanded to recognize the veterans of all wars. As a veteran myself, I want to take a moment to recognize the sacrifices made by veterans and their families through the years. Separated families, missed life events, holidays apart, being in harm’s way and the fear that a loved one will not come home, these are things veterans and their families endure every year and someone is enduring them virtually everyday. Regardless of your political views, take a moment and remember the veterans past and present, especially those in combat, and those who wait at home, longing for their return.
