Veterans Day 2014

My dad served in Vietnam when he was fresh out of ROTC. He came home, back to his wife, started a family and lived a healthy, productive life until his death at the age of 60. Not all veterans are so lucky.

Today is Veterans Day and there are lots of men and women in this country who served this country and could now use your help. If you plan to donate this Veterans Day, please consider the Wounded Warrior Project. Additionally, my friend Suzanne wrote a lovely post a few years ago about How to Celebrate Veterans Day that still rings true.
