Although the designated holiday falls on Saturday it will be Friday that many government employees will have the day off to celebrate.

Please keep in mind that our active duty brothers and sisters will most likely NOT be getting the day off to celebrate and that is especially so if they are assigned to a combat zone!

If you know a veteran or an active duty military person please take a moment to give them a 'thank you'.  If you encounter one 'out and about' take a moment to shake their hand (assuming they still have hands).

I can speak from personal experience that us 'older' veterans enjoy a nice warm 'Welcome Home' greeting which is something we did NOT receive when we were in our teens and 20s.

Happy Veterans day to all those that fought the battles in WW II, Korea, VN and in the Mid East.  I have a lot of respect for those.  Those conditions had to be brutal to where 99% of today's millennials couldn't tolerate.
