I just wanted to wish all our service men and women a Happy Veterans Day and to thank them for all they do.
Two of my nephews are are currently serving. My family has a long history in the military. All of my Irish cousins who came to this country fought in World War I. My great uncle who was a machine gunner on the front lines actually died on Armistice Day. Two of my uncles also served in the Navy in World War II, and I had a cousin who served in Vietnam. Sadly, he was killed just days before he was supposed to return home.
Several more family members are veterans of the military in the UK and Ireland. I would never forget the contributions of women in my family. My aunt was an ambulance corps worker on the front lines in World War I before becoming a nun.
Our veterans have done so much for us, and they deserve to be respected and honored for their service!!!
