Today honors all the members of the United States Armed Forces who have proudly served their country. Our vets have protected and served us by fighting to keep our country safe and by preserving our rights and way of life. Since today is ‘Veteran’s Day’ I thought I’d post three ways you can thank a veteran. The first is the most obvious: Just say ‘thanks.’ Just that simple act gets good vibes going every time. If you’re more motivated you might volunteer to serve the veterans in your community in some way, or even drop an anonymous ‘Thank You’ note at the local VA. The last thing you can do is to visit the Wounded Warriors Foundation website. Giving back with kindness, gratitude and love is what today is all about.

They Did Their Share
On Veteran’s Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.
Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it’s been many years;
In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.
Some came back; some didn’t.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.
No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.
Let every veteran be honored;
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can’t repay.
We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let’s say “thank you” to every wearer.
