Happy Veteran's Day! (yesterday was the actual day but it feels like today since the banks, post offices, schools, etc are closed)
I am blessed that there were two veterans I was raised very close to. Both my maternal grandmother and grandfather served in World War II. I look at photos like these ones and think about the risks that they took, hoping they would pay off both for their country and their futures. I think about how brave they were to go off to serve at such a young age and about what it gave to our country as a whole but also to our family.
To them, and all veterans, I am forever grateful.
