If you are a Veteran, it means you sacrificed several years of your life for the prerogative of obeying orders from those of higher rank than you. It meant performing unfathomable push-ups, sit-ups, and hiking countless miles while wearing a bulky rucksack.
You have endured drills, shooting ranges, GI parties, and of course, field trips in the rain or cold. Mind-numbing hours on guard duty or kitchen patrol.
Also, if you managed to earn yourself an extra burden by breaking one or more of the numerous regulations, you had up to 22 hours a day of the same obligations, followed by a ‘philanthropic’ 2 hours of sleep.
Then, you were expected to repeat that process the next day.
Being a Veteran also consists of a great deal of honor. You were willing to fight and die in service to this country.
You were separated from friends, family, and loved ones. You gave up control of your life to others and had to trust your well-being to them.
You risked life and limb and potential injury to complete a mission, help your buddies fighting alongside you, or just in doing what you were supposed to do.
You took an oath to ‘Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States’… and lived up to it.
This is a thank you to all Veterans. This day is your day, and you should feel proud. We wish you love and good fortune, and we hope you know your sacrifices are wholeheartedly appreciated.
Happy Veterans Day!
