There are heroes that walk among us unrecognized. The ones who haven’t made their success widely known on social media platforms or on television specials. They pass us in the cereal aisle at the grocery store in jeans and drop their children off at school without fanfare or celebration.
They’re grandparents and great-grandparents. They’re aunts and uncles, moms and dads, sisters and brothers and friends. They coach little league teams and volunteer their time. They wear business suits and sit beside us quietly on airplanes during work trips.
These are the ones who have freely given their time to serve and protect our country. Today, whether you’re celebrating Veteran’s Day, taking a few moments of silence at 11 a.m., or preparing to honor our veterans on Remembrance Day, let’s not forget to pause and say “thank you.”
