It's Veteran's Day today - have you thanked a Vet today?  Veterans are all around us...I try to make it a point to thank each one I see.  The reaction is simply...amazing!  I find it charming and also a little sad when I thank a Veteran and he/she says, "Aw, I didn't do much" or some such thing.  

Ever notice the car or truck with the Purple Heart on the license plate?  You know, the one in front of you at the gas station, next to you at the grocery store, driving down the road?  Chances are, the one driving is theWater Men Stripe Socks Sport Women Swim Non Slip Green ROTOK Shoes Beach Yoga Surfing for Aqua Shoes Outdoor Barefoot Veteran - and a true giveaway is to simply look at their hat!  Loaded with pins, medals and pride, it is a daily wardrobe staple for many of our Veterans.                      

This pic is actually my own from the summer the Vietnam Traveling Wall came to South Portland, Maine.

Today, let all of us shout out our thanks to all of our Veterans.  These men and women are our friends, neighbors, colleagues, the mailman/lady, the bank teller, the grocery store clerk, the real estate agent...they have made tremendous sacrifices for each and every one of us who walk and talk FREELY in the United States of America.  Let us all recognize this today.  Look around you - chances are, there is a Veteran nearby.

Thank them.  HUG them.  Tell them what they mean to you.  I have seen tears come to the eyes of grown men and women when being thanked for their Service.  It's heartwarming.  It's RIGHT.  It takes only a moment of your time.  And the appreciation that comes back to you is HUGE.

I also send my personal thanks and hugs to some of my favorite Veterans today: My Dad; my brother-in-law, Dave; my niece's husband, Bill; my fiance, Tuck; Jim P and Jim B, who are helping us work through the VA system for Tuck's disability claim; my generous, kind and caring friend, Peter P and all of the VeteransWomens Black Falcon Black pink adidas px5qHwH I know and don't know.  THANK YOU.  I love you all and words can never express my great appreciation of your service and sacrifice to our great country.  God bless you all!

This flag photo is also my own.  It is from the dedication of Wells' Clock Tower several years ago.
