WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT A VETERAN?
Tuesday, 14 May 2013 02:20
Veteran's  Day is not just a holiday to go shopping and viagra online overnight take advantage of Veteran's Day sales.  Remembering our veterans is a deadly serious matter.  In some ways, life is like a lottery and the veterans who serve and served in our military took a chance with their lives to protect us and our way of life.  Their future and survival, many times, a matter of mere luck.  Protecting our way of life?  With decades of domestic peace, 9/11 was a terrible wake up call for us in this country.   We have for several generations been protected by a strong military made up of our fellow citizens.  It is no accident that we live with the peace that we have become so accustomed.  On this veterans day, we need to take a moment to remember, thank and reflect on the sacrifices and risks that have been taken by our veterans.  Without them, our way of life could have been terribly different.    Col. Nicholas E. Phillips,  USAF (Ret.)
