It may be a few days after Veterans Days but it is never too late to thank the many Veterans who have insured our freedom. My father was a veteran of World War II and it was many, many years after the end of the war when he was actually able to share his participation in that world event. It was very difficult for him to speak of it, as I am sure it was for all the soldiers. My brothers and I still share the different bits and pieces of those event and years. My mother’s four brothers were all in World War II and this was after losing their oldest brother at Pearl Harbor. Their story was not unique as that whole generation was impacted by the war. One can truly understand their celebration of peace. Thank you, Veterans; we are eternally in your debt.
