Here in the USA, Monday is Veterans Day. We don't make a big hug event of it. Never have. Irremember going to a veterans memorial ceremony with my grandparents growing up but that is the most we ever did.
There is one small thing you can do to recognize the day. It is simple and small. Shake a veterans hand and say thank you. Did his wife follow him during his career? Thank her to. Their children who had no choice and the parents who had to say goodbye to their child.
See? It doesn't take much.
Ready for something more? There are many organizations out there that help vets. Programs to get them in homes, train service dogs and ptsd treatment centers. These programs need money and there is never enough to go around. A donation would be an excellent way to pay it forward.
One more idea for you. Take flowers to your local veterans cemetery. Recognize the price of freedom with one red rose.
Stepping off my soap box now. You know where I want my roses for Veterans Day. On my backside. I hope that with an extra day off, Dragon will find the time to play. I want to write that post about how Dragon spanks His wife... Have a great three day weekend.
