Have you thanked a veteran today? I am privileged to spend time in the dog park with a veteran almost every day. I am thankful to my brain for remembering to express my appreciation for her service this morning since we see each other before sunrise and I'm not at my best then. After a short talk about her experiences we, at her request, talked about other things. It was the right thing to mention the day, though, I'm sure of it.
Thank you to all the veterans who have fought to make it possible for the kids in this picture to find it perfectly normal to be the best of friends. I am sorry you had to fight.
