I always wanted to be in the Navy. It was always my plan to wear the uniform to be in a position of change and authority. Veteran’s Day to me is the opportunity for everyone to take a moment and to acknowledge that the freedoms and liberties that they exercise on a daily basis were not warranted on their own. That’s not a liberty that just showed up from nowhere. And it feels good to be acknowledged on that day for the sacrifices that are made. I spend Veteran’s Day with my family. trying to laugh as much as possible and just appreciate that there is a day set aside for the acknowledgement of those who sacrifice.
