Each year, Nick is asked to speak at one of the schools in honor of their Veterans Day program, and this year it was the middle school. It's always humbling to hear him speak, as his days in the Army seem like such a distant memory. But the places he has been, the things he has seen, the causes he has fought for, are all very real. I am so proud of him for serving our country, but also very grateful that he is home.
My kids are too young to know the importance of today, but each year I will continue to bring them along to such services. I want them to know, honor, and appreciate the freedom they have, and the price that others are willing to sacrifice to ensure that they have it.
Have you thanked a Veteran today?
