Something To Read On Veteran’s Day

Saying thank you to a veteran always feels inadequate to me, and it surely is. But I don’t know what else to do. So today I wanted to point you to one of the most moving pieces I’ve ever read, written by my friend and veteran Adam T. Glass. This is something that nearly brought me to tears with its power.

Please go read the thoughts of a veteran on this day. And I probably won’t quit saying thank you to veterans, but I’ll try not to pretend I understand, either.

Adam, thank you for everything.

here is I, Veteran.

    Most influential article from him so far in my opinion. I don’t know what to say.

    My nephew is into his last 90 days of his second tour in Iraq. I am forwarding Adam’s article to him as soon as I get home. I DID cry while I was reading it.

    I appreciate you, always have, always will. Thank you for this.
    Thank you for pointing me to Adam’s post as well. His words drifted over me like leaves from the last day of autumn. I needed to read them.

    Josh, thank you for passing this along. While I could not serve in the military (vision), I do come from a line of citizen soldiers. Grandfathers that served in WWII (One was at D-Day, and the other a Pearl Harbor survivor), a father that served 20+ years in the USN and Vietnam veteran, and a “little” brother who just returned from Iraq and is a few years shy of retirement.

    Having never served, I can’t even begin to understand what our service men and women go through. I do understand the sacrifice that they make–long stints away from loved ones, very little “down time” when deployed, and always the possibility of laying down one’s life looming on the horizon.

    For this, I am truly thankful of the citizen soldier, and all who served before him. Thank you.
