Today is Veterans Day. For those of you who have the day off of work, you'll have no trouble remembering that. For those of you who still have to go to work, it will be harder to remember. So I'm here to remind you. Remind you that this is the day set aside to remember and honor every person who has served in our armed forces during a war.
My father was in the Air Force for 27 years. His father was in the Army Air Corps in World War Two. His brother was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. There is no doubt at all that those experiences shaped those men, for better or for worse. I remember my dad telling me when I was in high school that nobody wants peace more than those who have been soldiers.
So today, please remember and honor in your thoughts all those soldiers who have served in a war. And if you pray, say a prayer for them. For them, and for peace.
