Veterans Day is an opportunity for all Americans to come together to celebrate our veterans' strength and resilience; to help those veterans who need it; to honor them by creating new opportunities after their service, and to support them so they can continue making a profound difference in the world.
I rarely speak of it but my father was a WWII veteran who landed on D-Day fought his way through the Battle of the Bulge to come home his county asking little more than to raise a family (and fish). I was of the Vietnam War generation, which for better or worse never did more America than pay taxes and vote. Most of the uncles were vets and to them and my father, I am eternally grateful. They truly were the greatest generation.
