It’s Veterans Day; Do Something.

Veterans: Men and women who have voluntarily curtailed their own freedoms and agreed to give their lives, if  neccessary, in order to protect you and I as citizens of the United States and defend the freedoms and privileges we largely take for granted.

On this Veterans Day, checkout a great post on Huffington –  “5 Things You Didn’t Know About Veterans (And How You Can Support Them)“. It covers  homelessness, PTSD and other types of disability, and issues involving active duty. Lots of links on how you can help.

The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America do a great job in addressing needs of vets, particularly in an oft-overlooked area: the difficult re-integration into daily civilian life. Checkout their latest outreach PSA:

    Readers may also be interested in the writings home from the front of US Sgt. Sam Avery during the Great War (World War I). Fascinating eyewitness history from the hot sands along the Rio Grande to the cold mud along the Meuse.

    This blog is an adventure long in the making for me in honor of my own family hero. Letters are posted on the same day they were written from the trenches 91 years ago. Today I found myself staring at my watch counting down the minutes to 1100 hrs.

    Long before the Greatest Generation there was the Most Gallant Generation. Stop by and come march along…
