Today is Veteran’s Day. Time to thank a veteran for his or her service. Time to reflect on what their service means to us. Time to remember that there were many ball players who served. Here is an excellent place to learn about players in the military.
If you know a veteran, especially someone who has served recently, today is a wonderful opportunity to tell them that you appreciate their service and sacrifice. Even if you don’t agree with the reasons for our armed conflicts- and God/Buddha/Jobu knows- there have been some less than good causes for them, it’s not the servicemen’s or servicewomen’s fault that politicians can’t find a non-military solution for perceived problems.
If you are a veteran, never apologize for it. Hold your head up proudly, and know that you served your country when others were unwilling or unable to do so.
