Today is Veteran’s Day. If you can, hug and/or shake the hand of a veteran today.
Over one million servicemen and servicewomen have died in defense of freedom and to maintain the safety of this greatest nation on Earth. Almost 24 million veterans are alive today, including almost 2 million veterans of WWII, and about 600,000 veterans of the global war on terror.
One of my favorite parts of Hillbuzz is hearing the diversity of anecdotal stories, both from the Boyz and from the readers, so please feel free to share your experiences today if you meet and talk with any veterans, or if you attend any sort of commemorations or services.
And to all the veterans who read this blog, I thank you for your service. I think I safely speak for everyone here when I say we are grateful for your contributions and proud to have you reading (and hopefully posting!) here on Hillbuzz.
God bless America, and her veterans.
