Veterans Day

How does one wish a veteran well on Veterans Day? "Happy Veterans Day" seems trite. The memories that veterans have aren't all happy. There's gladness on the part of those who survived, but sadness at the memories of those who did not. And frustrations and traumas to be gotten through. It is a crime that the country has done so little for all of you. This should be the Thanksgiving day to honor those who served - a day to reflect on the blood price of freedom.

(This was supposed to be published yesterday.)
