It's good and proper to express gratitude to those who do the most for our Liberty. It makes us a litter bigger in our soul when we reverently remember how many fulfilled life's hardest call of duty:
( Love the video and song. Nicked it from Yabu's crib.)
I made a Vietnam Vet cry last Saturday. He was wearing his ballcap from 'Nam and I commented on it, "that's quite a cap to wear. . ." and he stammered something I couldn't make out. I continued, "thank you, sir, for choosing to wear it. We are in your debt."
He choked up and grabbed my outstretched hand to shake it and said, "Thanks, that means so much. You know we didn't get that when we came back."
"I know," I said, "we still owe you one."
He smiled broadly, with tears in his eyes. He had just come from a memorial service for his comrades in arms and was in deep emotional reverie of the day's events.
Do yourself a favor and find a Vet to thank and honor. On any day.
