Here’s to all those who were brave enough to do something most of us were not. I am the granddaughter of a World War II veteran (RIP) and the daughter of a Vietnam veteran (RIP), and I couldn’t be more proud.
I remember going out with my dad, and he never hesitated to thank others who served. He always took the time to stop, thank the stranger and shake their hand. Most of the time they’d share stories, and while some might think this was an inconvenience for me being there with him…I found it heart warming. How bravery could bring strangers together with a simple ‘Thank You.’ It’s more than most people do on a regular day.
So go out and thank a veteran for the freedom you get to enjoy every day, and keep those we’ve lost in your heart today and always.
We miss you Dad…
