“Today is a day to honor those who have honored our country with its highest form of service. We owe our veterans our thanks. Our respect. Our freedom. Today, we humbly acknowledge that we can never truly serve our veterans in quite the same way that they served us. But we can try. We can practice kindness. We can volunteer. We can serve. We can respect one another. We can have each other’s backs. We can ask, “Now, what else can I do?”

The above quote is from President Obama. Many of the people I’ve had the honor to work with have worn the Uniform of our country. I would add that while today we recognize veterans, we cannot forget the sacrifices made by their families. The extra work, the fear and doubt of those waiting can’t be easy.
