The depth of emotion on Veteran’s Day did not really hit me until I was present at the Vietnam Memorial one past Veteran’s Day. It was a truly moving experience I have never forgotten. To my granddad, a U.S. horse soldier in France in World War I and my uncle, whose budding baseball career was halted by a shot to the leg in World War II at the Battle of the Bulge, thanks! My dad, who missed the war but served nonetheless, thanks! And to all the veterans who willingly risk their lives, thanks! We owe them all so much.
