I'm taking today off,Â Â not because I am a Veteran, but because I am married to one.Â In this time in our nation's history, it's more important than ever to show our Veteran's that we support them and that we are thankful for their service.
We all know someone from the Vietnam era who was yelled at, spit on and disrespected because they servedÂ their country...Â
Â 'Not on my watch!'Â
Our generation has the chance to do, what our parents generation didn't do... Welcome home those who have volunteered to protect this great country of ours!
Today is aÂ day to thank your family members, friends and total strangers for being brave and selfless. Today is a day to celebrate those who made it home and a day to remember those who didn't!
If you have worn a uniform in service to our country, I can say withÂ my wholeÂ heart...
If you're looking for a way to thank a Veteran, check out these groups and causes.
Watch this documentary about some local volunteers who thank our troops as they return home.
It's on tonight!
