Not Just Another Monday....


Big Head Todd and the Monsters - "Flanders Fields"
For every man and woman who wears now or who has worn the uniform of one of the branches of the military of these United States, from a man who has never been asked to do likewise, I say simply this:  Thank You.  
Today is Veterans' Day.  Truth be told, every day should be Veterans' Day.  How do you honor those who protect and serve us every day by setting aside just a single day on the calendar?  It seems less than adequate.  Administrative Professionals get an entire week.  The fucking ground hog gets a day.  Is that equity?  Just saying....
Happy Veterans' Day to active duty military members and veterans everywhere.  A grateful nation thanks you for your service.  We need to do a better job of expressing our thanks.  Every day between this Veterans' Day and Veterans' Day 2014 that should be our mission.  Whether through the Wounded Warrior Project, Hope for Warriors, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, the Fisher House Foundation or one of the other excellent organizations out there fighting the good fight for those who have been fighting the good fight for all of us, opportunities abound to help those who have served.  And whose service has been for the benefit of all of us.
