I think every day of the year should be Veterans Day and we as a society should do more to show how grateful we really are that men and women serve our country to make it a better place for us. I can not imagine what it takes or how it feels to be in a war or in a fire fight with an enemy that is trying to kill you.
There have been documentaries on the history channel and the military channel about World War 2 and the Vietnam War the past couple of days, and a lot of the men fighting look or they are younger than I am. You can go to war at 18 years old and you’ll come home 19 years old, but you’ve already lived a lifetime in that one year of duty. In some battles in WW2 there were 40,000 American casualties, it is really hard to wrap around your head around those numbers.
I just want to thank everyone who has served our country during time of peace of in a war. Thank you for keeping the USA awesome and the best country in the world.
