Veteran's Day is more than a day off from school. It's a time to celebrate all the men and women who served or are currently serving our country.
Living in Las Vegas near an Air Force base means I knew many people in the military. Several of my friends' husbands were in the Air Force. My best friend from high school joined the Marines and has served three tours. We know many Veterans.
But this man is my favorite Veteran.
My dad was in the Air Force during Vietnam. He was one of the men who joined voluntarily. He never talked about his time in the military when I was growing up, but lately he's told me some of the details. It's interesting hearing about the time in his life before he got married and had kids.
This year on Veteran's Day take the time to thank the Veterans in your life.
