Today, let's salute all those who have served our country in the armed services. My father was a WWII vet. He dropped out of high school and joined up as soon as he was old enough. Like so many of the brave men who left home behind to protect their families and country after Pearl Harbor, he's passed on from this life. I miss him everyday.
In our modern world, somethings about war have changed but one thing has stayed the same. There are still brave men and women doing all they can to protect their country and families. They're far from home, under lots of stress and in my opinion, underpaid. They're heroes. I hope we all remember that today.
Thank you, veterans, for what you've done and the sacrifices you've made.
