Happy Veterans Day

Veterans Day has always been an important holiday in my family. When my father was a young man, he served in the Coast Guard. When my grandfather was a young man, he served in the Navy during the Korean War. And now one of my best friends from my hometown serves in the Army Chemical Corps.

I wish my father a happy Veterans Day each year. I’m not sure if that’s exactly correct, but he always appreciates it.

To our veterans and future veterans, thank you for your service.
