I have written a few posts touching on this topic so instead of writing a whole new one, I will dig through my trenches and share those with you. One of my personal favorites is one I wrote after a chance encounter with a Veteran in Corpus Christi. His name is Rick and you can meet him HERE. He touched me so much that we kept in contact and I did a follow up story on him HERE. My Dad is a Veteran and so are some of my closest friends. You can meet a few of them HERE. I also wrote a post about the actual cost of FREEdom. I have some benefits as a Veteran but they were earned with great sacrifice. Read about them at: The Price I paid to fly First Class for free.
So on this Veterans Day, 2014, as you stand and salute those who served to protect your freedoms, don't forget to salute, honor, and/or hug their family members. They gave the ultimate sacrifice by staying behind and praying for their loved ones.
