Veterans Day 2013...

There have been some pretty good posts for Veterans Day passed, if you would take a moment on this special day to give them a look it would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the list:

Veterans Day 2012

Veterans Day 2011

Veterans Day 2010

Veterans Day 2009

Veterans Day 2008

If you are a veteran (or you know one) there are restaurants tripping all over themselves to give you a free meal today, The Military Wallet has a pretty substantial list here.

For those of you old enough to remember there was a time when the brave men and women of our military did not have our support. They represented what many believed was a failed American policy and they bore the brunt of that.

The video below does a beautiful job demonstrating how some veterans, those of us from the Vietnam era, sometimes don't quite feel as "welcomed" home. But the best part of the video is it also shows it being overcome.

Happy Veterans Day to my brothers in arms.

Thank you Scott for this video. I never served, but I was in high school in the late 60"s and I remember the anger and the ridicule shown toward you heroes. It made me feel sad and angry that our country could be so unsupportive.
