Veterans Day Salute

A special tip of Daisy Mae's hat to all our military veterans this weekend as we acknowledge Veterans Day on Sunday, November 11. It's still hard for me to picture my dad as a young man heading off to fight World War II. Yet he, like thousands of others before, during, and after that conflict, dropped everything and headed off to defend the freedoms we all take for granted. The lucky ones like my Dad return home and assume their roles in civilian life. The unfortunate ones make the supreme sacrifice.
This weekend, as you enjoy shopping, watching football, relaxing at a movie, listening to a concert, eating at a restaurant, worshipping at church, or just taking a walk to enjoy the gorgeous fall weather, please pause to remember our veterans and thank them in the way each one deserves.
