Today is Veterans Day. A day which we should set aside our differences (and God knows we have a few) and give thanks to those few who stepped up when almost no one else would. Yeah I know I stole that line from someone else, Major Lacey was/is a Soldier, retired now and pursuing the good life but still serving his Bothers and Sister of the US military by working with an organization that makes sure they receive the helping hand they may need. A man I'm fortunate to call my friend and an example of why we Honor the best this Country has to offer. I know he wouldn't mind. Currently our family has three serving; a Lt. Col. with the 101st, a Sgt with the Army Reserve and the latest addition: a Private 1st class with the US Army. If this keeps up it won't be too long until our family tradition will consist of 100 years of continuous service. While I didn't have the privilege of serving I've done my best to do as the Major once told me:" You have your part and we have our part. Your support is a powerful weapon in it's own right." I guess what I'm trying to say is while we go about our usual daily grind keep in mind those currently serving who are going about their day and never forget those who went about their day. If you see a Soldier, Sailor, Coast Guardsman, Airman or Marine acknowledge their dedication to the most important 'job' ever offered; Protecting Us. A simple nod and a smile goes a long way. Standing in line? Buy them that cup of coffee or sandwich. See a youngster in uniform pumping gas? Pony up and slip the cashier an extra 10 or 20 and tell them, "put it on pump #". You'll be glad you did trust me!
