A Veteran

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with eDrake

A Veteran - whether on active duty, retired, National Guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including their life"

That is Honor and there are too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

Most people today fail to realize the sacrifice that has been made by our Veterans.  It irritates me when I see people disrespect our Veterans...... the old ones from the "Greatest Generation" and our new Veterans that are created every day!  We owe each and every one deep respect and honor.

Edward, this is so very true. We owe a lot to the men and women in our armed forces. Thanks.

Great Reminder Edward.  I think because we are not in a traditional war, many people forget about this.

We owe a lot to our vets in the armed services.  Our civilian leaders in office should take great care before sending the troops in harm's way.
