Honoring the Honorable on Veterans Day

November 11, 2010

Veterans Day is not merely a single day on which you should thank a soldier or extra-appreciate the men and women who have served in our armed forces.  It is an annual checkpoint.  It is a day to reflect on how well in the previous year you have appreciated those who have exhibited their love for country in their service to her.   It is also a gentle reminder of the importance of carrying and sharing this gratitude going forward throughout the year.

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.

The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.

–  George Washington
