Remember what today means:
Many Americans mistakenly believe that Veterans Day is the day America sets aside to honor American military personnel who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained from combat. That's not quite true. Memorial Day is the day set aside to honor America's war dead.Thank a veteran today. Make a point of it.
Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors ALL American veterans, both living and dead....
As a veteran of the Vietnam Era, the first time that anyone thanked me for my service was in 2006. Not that I expected any thanks! I was honored to serve my nation.
Here is a video that I found over at Mrs. AOW's site:
Try to thank a Vietnam Era veteran today.
