Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 12.08.23 PMWhen I notice an old-timer proudly wearing their military hat, I salute them and always thank them for their service! They take pride in their ability to have defended our nation – US!

We frequently see younger military returning from service, wearing their fatigues, and take the time to acknowledge their sacrifice, but older vets are more obscure.

Society elevates actors, musicians, sports players, and politicians, but too often neglect the veteran who is riding the local bus; sitting in a waiting; accompanying his wife in the mall. They may not be plastered on album covers, TV and the news, but nonetheless there ARE OUR HEROS! PLEASE TELL THEM!
