Five Good Things About Veterans

11 Nov

Please note: This is not a post about whether this war or that conflict should be classified as right, wrong, necessary, frivolous, just, or unjust.  What it is intended as is a sign of respect and gratitude to those who protected others during or from a conflict or war that could be classified as right, wrong, necessary, frivolous, just, or unjust. 

1.) Veterans are survivors.  Not only are they survivors, because of them, other people are also survivors.

2.) Veterans do a lot for little personal pay or recognition.

3.) Veterans hold to a code and concepts such as honor and team that have faded to old ideals for others.

4.) Veterans gave more than they asked.

5.) Veterans signed on to a set ideals, despite not knowing how much would be asked of them to preserve those ideals.

Happy Veterans’ Day!  Thanks to vets, like my dad, and active duty personal.
