I learned something new about Veterans Day! The United States is not the only country that celebrates it. I never knew that.
I found this article in a Google Search about Veterans Day: https://www.history.com/topics/holidays/veterans-day-facts
When I joined the Navy I am pretty sure that serving my country was not foremost in my mind. I was pretty young and my motivation at that time was getting out of the house and doing something other than going to school. College wasn’t working out so well for me. I didn’t want to be there. Initially, I wasn’t even going to go through with it. Then I mentioned to some people I knew that I was talking to recruiters and they laughed at me. That was it. I had something to prove to myself and the naysayers who told me that I would never make it. Yeah, just watch me. One of the best choices I ever made in my life.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who has served, those who served and are no longer with us, those who are still serving, and to the families of all of them. Happy Veterans Day!
