A Salute to Veterans

When Facebook became really popular and we started posting messages on holidays, I tried to post on Veterans Day, tagging all of my friends and family that were Vets.  I had too many.  So I decided that this year, I would do a blog post.  This is just honoring my family, but I have many, many friends that are Vets too.

Please feel free to add your name, or the names of special Veterans in the comment section.

Thank you to all Veterans for all of their sacrifices.
