I salute my father for serving in the Marines in WW2. I salute my uncle, Army,POW and Purple Heart, for serving in WW2. I salute another uncle,Air Force, for serving 30 years, 3 wars. He received numerous awards and several Purple Hearts. I salute Pat's father and 2 uncles, Navy, all POW's, WW2. I salute Pat, Army, Vietnam. I salute all the men and women that have served in our Armed Forces.
Some people may note that I did not say I salute the men and women serving now. There is a reason. This is Veteran's Day. It is a day to honor those that have served.
