As the daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend, of military veterans, I wanted to take today to honor the people who have served in or are currently serving in the armed forces. I know the sacrifices that need to be made to be able to wear those uniforms and it is a position that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Being part of the military is something that shouldn’t be taken for granted and I feel honored to have such close ties to the military. From the days of watching my father come home in his uniform or seeing my uncle retire to even witnessing members of the military honoring my relatives after their passing, I have always had respect for the military and their veterans. Whenever I see a veteran, I always feel a special attachment to them because the life of veterans is all too familiar to me. So, if you see a veteran today or any day, make sure to show them respect and remember what they’ve done for you.
