I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to all veterans of the United States armed services on this Veterans Day. Your service to our nation in good times and in bad is appreciated by all who have a sense of honor and decency.
In my own family, my dad and almost all my uncles on both sides of the family served in either the Army or the Navy. The Complementary Spouse’s father, brother, and sister-in-law all served as Air Force officers. I was about to say we didn’t have any Marines but then I remembered my cousin Jackie served as a Marine Corps mortarman in the 1950s.
