There are moments in one's life that stand apart from the rest. There are magnificent highs and terrifying lows. But then there are those other moments when you know that something seemingly ordinary turns out to be, well, extraordinary.
One sad statistic that keeps making the news recently is how many World War II veterans leave us each year... and each day. The most recent statistics provided by the Veterans Administration (VA) tell us that an estimated 642 World War II veterans pass away each and every day.
With over two million active and reserve personnel currently in our Armed Forces and over 22 million veterans, it is more important than ever to let them know we support them. What are you doing to be M.A.D. this Veterans Day?
This Veterans Day is a good time to initiate a conversation about a memorial to the veterans who have fought our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, our longest wars. Forgetting wars is bad history. Forgetting sacrifice is irresponsible history.
