Happy Veterans Day
So yesterday we talked about the founding of the US Marine Corps, which was a fitting segway into our post today about Veteran's Day. I know that it seems trite because we talk about it every year once or twice a year and we should all really be thanking and honoring the Veterans every day, but alas this is one of the times when we all seem to pick up our heads and take notice. So that is that. Happy Veterans Day to everyone who has or is serving in the armed forces. It doesn't matter if you sat a desk at Ft. Leonard Wood and answered phones, or if you were flying a helicopter around Vietnam, or if you were storming caves in Afghanistan, if you served you were an integral part in the complicated machine that allows our country to remain the way it is, and that allows us to spread our ideals around the world - even if it is somewhat forably at times. So thank you. We here at Big Dave and Company may not always like the wars (or the military actions) but we will always be a big fan of the troops. You guys do an amazing job of getting done what is asked of you, and you deserve every benefit that you get for it. And you deserve the admiration and respect of every American. I know that you have mine. Here is to you. Happy Veterans Day!
