There are so many things to say on Veteran’s Day; and frankly it is impossible for me to express the gratitude that we owe to our servicemen and women. Instead, I’ll simply relate a story told to me by a friend about when he explained Veteran’s Day to his son, who was about 8 at the time.
While explaining the concept of Veteran’s Day, his son wanted to know what a veteran was. My friend explained, and his son looked around very thoughtfully and said “So veterans are like superheroes.” My friend sat there for a second and finally replied, “No son, veterans are who superheroes look up to.”
Thank you all for your service.
