“In Their Words..” Veterans Day

A couple days early for Veterans Day, but Wednesday is the day for “In Their Words..”

We owe such a debt of gratitude to our veterans; a single day of honor could never be enough, but it’s a good start. 
I asked our service members to name the most influential person in their lives. Over and over they named NFL football greats, Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famers, and famous billionaires.

Just kidding.

They didn’t say that.

Not even close.

They did so much better.

Turns out, today’s military members have often been inspired to serve, with honor and sacrifice, by a Veteran in their life.

Why Veterans Day? Why celebrate those who have served with honor? We celebrate them for their service, their sacrifice, their stories, and for their legacy — which continues to inspire the next generation of heroes.
