It’s Veteran’s Day … a day we honor the men and women who have served our country. I’m married to a Veteran and have a small understanding of the sacrifices military personnel make to serve our country.
My dad served in WWII. He was wounded and the only survivor in his squad. Al served during the Vietnam era.
Unfortunately, times were very different in the 1970’s when my husband served. Military service members returning from a tour in Vietnam were not treated well. Instead of thanking them for their service, they were scorned, spit on, cussed at, and even had eggs thrown at them. It was not America’s finest hour, to say the least.
Thank goodness we’ve moved beyond those times, and we now thank those that have served in the military, current and past.
All give some, some give all. Thank you for your service!
In honor to those that have served, I share with you a very unique and interesting Veterans Memorial located in the town of Anthem, Arizona.
