So to the members of the U.S. Senate, I say: if you want to really support the troops this Veterans Day weekend, turn off the destructive partisanship and come together to do what is best for veterans and military families.
Veterans Day is flanked this year by the Election on one side and Thanksgiving on the other, both occasions that suck a lot of oxygen out of the air. But that can't alter what this day means to Veterans, nor what it means to their families.
America's veterans stood up on behalf of our nation; joining together with others to think beyond themselves to the greater good. Super Heroes. Yes, I definitely agree with the first grader's description of a veteran. The call came and they answered.
