First off, I must apologize for the tardiness of this show, but getting it posted on Friday just wasn’t a possibility. To me, Veterans Day is all about saying, “Thank you” to the men and women who have made sacrifices to establish, protect and keep our nation great. I must tell you, however, that any effort I put forth on Veterans Day to say, “Thanks” pales in comparison to what our vets have given. It is a struggle that I feel every year and I have found only one way to try and make up the difference. I treat Veterans Day as the reminder that I need to recognize, value and thank vets 24/7, 365. Today we are going to talk about one of the ways we can say thank you.

Veterans Day Isn’t Enough
Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad we have a day that is dedicated to the men and women that preserve our nation, but the issue is that one day isn’t enough. Let’s take a look at why.
- Those folks that serve serve 365 days a year in good weather and bad.
- Service members are often serving away from their loved ones for long durations.
- Risk, need I say more?
- Other bullshit that our troops must endure.
It may very well be the little things that matter!
- White signifies purity and innocence
- Red, hardiness & valor
- To me, the red has another meaning. It stands for the blood of those that have sacrificed for our nation.
- Some say that the red is a color we have taken from our mother country and the white stripes symbolize our separation from her.
