We all know at least one person who has fought, whether that's a grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother, sister, mom, dad, co-worker, schoolmate, or friend. Maybe it's the homeless man who stands on the corner seeking money. Perhaps it's the woman who sits two cubicles down from you. Then again, it could be the guy behind the counter at Burger King, the member of your church who sings a little off-key, or your friends boyfriend.
Let's remember that whether or not they agreed with the war, they still served. They patrolled. They helped rebuild. They ended lives. They saved lives. They created and carried out operations to end terrorists plots. They saw things that no one should ever see. They lived to tell the tale. They carry it all around with them everyday.
So this November 11, please say the most important thing you can to a soldier: "Thank you."
