Armed Forces Day 2016
Today is Armed Forces Day, honoring every branch of the U.S. military. If you know someone who is serving right now, reach out to them wherever they may be and let them know you are thinking about them. If you know a veteran, thank them for their service. If you know a Viet Nam veteran, make sure you tell them "Welcome Home!" These vets are very special to me, since I know several. I'll do this on a regular basis when I see some guy in a Viet Nam hat, jacket, or maybe a bumper sticker on his vehicle. Wanna see a grizzled old tough guy well up with tears in the grocery store? It works every time and they really do appreciate it.
