Today is Veteran’s Day. Despite what you see advertised, Veterans Day is more than a reason for every retail store to hold a sale. It’s the day we remember and celebrate the people that serve our country’s military.
Most people won’t notice today’s meaning and will simply become irritated because they can’t get their mail. It’s an important day to me. It reminds me of my grandfather. He retired from the Air Force with over 30 years of service. Listening to his stories of life before he shipped off to serve during World War II, what happened during the war, and his travel and life after the war are some of my favorite memories.
He passed away after 91 years enjoying life. He was the greatest guy I ever knew.
