It seems we have confused Veteran's Day with Memorial Day. Veteran's Day honors ALL veterans, living or dead, still serving, discharged or retired. While we should certainly honor our fallen comrades as well, lets not forget those among us who took time from their lives to serve their counrty honorably, whether for a single tour of duty, or for a career. Find a Vet today and thank him/her for your freedom.

Don't forget that today, Nov. 10 is the birthday of the Marine Corps.
