Description Of A Veteran

Veterans are described many ways by many people. This is the description I prefer.

“A Veteran is someone who at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for the amount of up to and including their life”.

Awesome statement. Very true. Too bad not everyone appreciates that fact.

Families of veterans do. They have to accept the sacrifices right along with them, but without their strength and support, our veterans could not do what they do.

Thank you!

Thank God for the men and women who are willing to make that sacrifice for us.

Fuckin A. That gave me goose bumps, Willy. I am so proud to have 3 children that are active in the military. My Dad and all my uncles were veterans. My father-in-law is a well-decorated WWII and Korean War Veteran. I have much love and respect for them, and for all the young men and women that have written a blank check to the US for our safety. Past, present and future.

That is an awesome statement. Awesome in the most respectful mannerism possible.

I wrote the check a few times, but it kept bouncing because of my hearing...what! what!

Thanks to all of you who were able to serve. Thank you, thank you.

Thanks everyone. We must always remember to honor and cherish our Veterans. Without them this Country could not and would not exist.
