Today is Veterans' Day in the U.S.A.
If no one has ever told you thank you for your service to our great country, allow me to be the first!
I know the Vietnam Veterans got a raw deal coming home into California back in the day. My father was one of them. Who never got a "thank you" for his service or honored in any way until my church did a service dedicated to service members one year. He wept. So did I.
It sent flames shooting from my eyes when I read that our soldiers were getting spit on again by Californians not that long ago when coming home from Iraq. So if you ever hear me say I hate those hippies, that's why.
I am a veteran, so I know what it means to be one. Whether you served in action on the war front or never so much as seen a simple riot.... I thank you for your time, sweat, dedication and honor.
