Veterans' Day Salute

In honor of all veterans and active military personnel, Daisy Mae's Market is donating 11% of today's sales to the Friends of the National World War II Memorial. The World War II Memorial holds a special place in my heart as my father proudly served in the 86th Chemical Mortar Battalion.
It's great to see so much recognition for "The Greatest Generation" these days. There are fewer of these WW II veterans around to thank personally so it's wonderful that we have places like the Memorial in Washington, DC. If you haven't been there, make the effort to go. All Americans need to learn about what these brave soldiers did and to show our appreciation and respect for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Thanks, Dad.
