Veteran's Day

I wanted to say thanks to all who have served to keep our country as great as it is.

If you know a Veteran, why not say thanks to them today. Take them to lunch or dinner, or maybe take a treat to them at home.

If you don't know a Veteran, visit a Veteran's hospital, visit a care center, the Veterans are all around us all the time.

Anytime you see a Veteran take a moment and thank them for their service - they deserve so much more than a simple thanks but they will certainly appreciate the acknowledgement.

My Veteran's have been thanked personally, at home and at work.

For those here, thank you for your service.

I have a lot of active duty and veterans in my immediate family - DH, my dad, my FIL, two brothers in law, and two nephews. Two are serving overseas right now. I appreciate the service and sacrifice of all our military members and veterans.

Fortunately employers are beginning to recognize the knowledge that our returning veterans have. More and more are being hired every day.
