My father was a veteran from the Vietnam war.
Veteran’s Day always has a different meaning for me.
My father served in the army, survived a helicopter crash, won an award for saving the life another solider form a rice paddy, and then returned home to start a family and live his life; he passed away on Veteran’s Day 13 years ago during surgery.
While we are reflective and thankful for the service they’ve given, they truly have made a sacrifice. Any one who has grown up with a veteran in their home knows that nothing is the same for them after they go home and live the rest of their lives. War is a traumatic thing that changes people forever.
In saying that I truly say thank you to our Veteran’s for keeping us safe. For all of the war controversy, those men and women are making huge sacrifices of their entire lives.
