(Yes)vember Day 11: Veteran's Day
Veteran's Day never resonated with me until my brother Matt joined the Army in 2004. He was stationed in Italy, then served in Afghanistan, and he continues to serve state-side now. I'm so incredibly proud of him, and thankful that he survived active combat -- and not only survived, but came home without any physical wounds.
On Veteran's Day, consider taking a meal to a military family close by, or buying a meal for a soldier you see in the airport. It's a great time to show appreciation and compassion to people who have been more brave than we could ever imagine.
