A veteran of the United States Military.
I am married to a veteran.
I am the daughter of a veteran.
I am the granddaughter of a veteran.
On Memorial Day we gather together to honor and remember those who went before us. Today, however, is Veteran's Day. Today we honor the living. The ones who returned--whole, scarred or wounded. The ones we served with and fought beside.
For better or for worse, thank you.
