Veterans Day

When you go home,
Tell them of us and say,
For your tomorrow
We gave our today.

Inscription, British War Memorial, Kohima, India.

[London], 4 July 1918)

Today is Veterans Day in the USA. As our soldiers, sailors and aviators serve and struggle for us throughout the world, particularly today in Iraq and Afghanistan, pause in your business for a moment, and think of them, and of our veterans. Remember those who are not with us today, because they made the ultimate sacrifice. If you know a veteran, and have the opportunity, say “Thank you.”
