Say "Thank you" to a Veteran!

I received an email yesterday from someone I know that served in the military and then a follow up email arrived from someone I didn't even know, but it was so sweet, and made me think about all of my loved ones, all of my dear friends, all the customers at Fort Bragg (I was in car sales and most of my customers were military) that are away serving in various parts of the world or that spent a good portion of their life serving.

It's not anywhere close to Veteran's Day, but please remember to say thank you to these hardworking, self-sacrificing men and women anytime you happen to see one out in uniform. They deserve our respect, our admiration, our love and our support, ALL year long.

Here's a small portion of the first email I received:

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or
national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one
point in their life, wrote a blank check made
payable to "The United States of America," for
an amount of "up to and including my life."

Thank you to all who have served and continue to do so!
