As a Korean Conflict veteran I was honored to be a part of the Veterans Day parade this year. The crowds were large and enthusiastic.
At one point a very young little lady came out of the crowd and handed me a hand-made note. It wasn’t until later that I read the note.
“Thank you for serving our country. Thank you for everything you did for us.”
I want you to know, Allison, that I will keep your note and comments as a treasure. You are the future of our great nation.
