This past Friday, we celebrated Veterans Day. This one day a year everyone comes together to support our men and women who served in our armed services.
It's not enough. We must support them every single day of their lives. So many of our military come home in body bags, without their limbs, with brain damage and they can't return to their old selves. Some of these men and women don't have the support of their families; all they have is the V.A., and if they let them down then there may be no one to help them.
For those soldiers who return home after killing and seeing friends blown up; it's almost impossible to return to normalcy without support somewhere. Some end up homeless and never find their way back.
The men and women who do return home seemingly unscathed will never be able to forget the events they participated in or watched unfold before their very eyes. They may talk about these events or not, but those events will be remembered even though they try to forget.
Today and every day here is a URL to go to and click on their button to help feed our veterans. All you have to do to get a reminder every day is ask for it. My good friends, Joe Hobbs and Sherri Ferguson do this faithfully every day, and I thank you for it. Joe was very handsome in his uniform as a young man. http://www.theveteranssite.com/tpc/ERV_111211_VET
Thank you to all of those who serve our country. You and your families give so much, and I appreciate all you do.
