Veterans Day is about service, and in a very specific way. But that service looks very different from person to person, because every experience, every deployment, every war, every locale, every job is a different bundle of things that make each story unique.
This year, try to connect with at least one person who has served or had a veteran in the family. Personally, I have several veteran relatives, and one who’s still active, and I’m so proud of all of them. Where appropriate, ask about their stories. Let’s get a better understanding of one more way someone has served. Go to one of the many events happening through the weekend to honor the sacrifices as well as the victories. Wouldn’t it be great if we really knew what this day is about?
Have a great week, everyone.
