What Is a Veteran?

A “Veteran” - whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve – is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to, and including their life.”  Any individual that volunteers to defend America while risking their life for the freedom of others should be admired as well as respected. This certainly is the case for me and hopefully you! So today on the special day we show our respect for our Veterans and any day thank them and let them know how much we appreciate them!
