Thank you to all of our veterans who have fought for our country.  So many.

There are almost 22 million vets in the US.  

God Bless every single one.

justly assists readily, 
adventures boldly, 
takes all patiently,
defends courageously
and continues a friend unchangeably.

Just watched a Veterans Day gathering and speech.

It was very moving to me. I had a friend a Vet who now I understand better the silent cost of serving in combat .

He might have never understood why he came home, unlike so many of his friends.

The quiet cost of freedom.

It is a burden that so many Veterans bear, in their hearts. Why they came home when so many of their close friends did not.

I hope the Vet's understand they do not carry it alone ! Many want to help you carry that load. With compassion help and support.

Some may have read this week that my meal was paid for by the person ahead of me in line and I was relating it to someone at work and he told me of a recent instance of helping a Veteran in a  similar way.

He was at Micky D's and the man ahead of him was buying a cup of coffee and sorting thru all pockets and loking for enough change to pay for only a cup of coffee.

My friend said he noticed a tattoo on his arm and it was the kind you might expect a military person to get.
So he asked him if he was a Vet. ?

He said yes.
My friend then told him to order  breakfast and even lunch if he wanted and he would pay for it.

You see my friend noticed that he came in on a bicycle with a small wagon attached , he was seemingly homeless .

So when the Vet said oh no that is ok I will be fine, my friend said No please let me buy you something as my thanks to you for serving in our military.

He responded with , well ok I have never had someone thank me like that before.

So as the speech to the National Veterans Day Ceremony said , Thank a Veteran . For being there for us.

Say Thank you for your service to them. !

Many of the Veterans have paid the high price of a silent cost that effects the rest of their life.

My friend was one of them , he just never got over the cost to him personally. Being in a combat zone and I can only imagine what he saw and experienced and had to do.

I remember he accepted me and counted me his friend and we bonded and I saw how he and his fellow Vets were bonded and it always amazed me and I coveted the camaraderie that is rare.

To my friend and to all the other Veterans I say,

...Thank you for Your Service, for your courage and for my freedom.

THANK YOU FOR DOING YOUR PART.
