Remembering our veteran's today
There's not a whole lot I can say on Veteran's Day. I, like so many millions of Americans, have family and friends in Iraq, Afghanistan, or returned - or not. My cousins, my prom date, my high school classmates. What do I say to honor them?
I really can't. I've channeled my energy into what I believe would help them most this year, and that was getting the right people elected. Candidates who promise to only use our troops when absolutely neccessary.
Now that (mostly) all the campaigns have stopped, I quickly realized that was the easy part. Now, it's about making sure those officials are going to do what they promised.
To really show our veteran's we care, lets make sure they are taken care of before they leave, while they are serving, and when they come back.
It's not about putting a flag up and calling it good. Make sure the candidates we've elected are looking out for our soldiers, looking out for our veterans.
