Have you Hugged a Vet Today?

Happy Veterans Day!! Hope everyone took a moment to remember what today was actually about, and no I don't mean the day off of work (if you're lucky) and the BBQ grill. I'm referring to the great men and women of our Armed Forces who make up the Single Greatest Fighting Force on the Face of the Planet. Remember, if not for them, you wouldn't be able to read this most outstanding blog.

War, is an atrocious, but necessary part of our world. Without it, men would not be free. In a perfect world, we could live in peace, and we would never have to raise arms against another nation. But men are imperfect beings. There will forever be Saddaam Husseins, and Osama Bin Ladens; there will always be Stalins and Hitlers and Napoleans. It's comforting to know that so long as there are these monsters out there, we will always have the United States Armed Forces to keep us free. Without war there can be no peace, no justice, no freedom.
