Celebrating our Veterans

Hi Veterans. I’d like to share with you “What Veterans Day Means to Me.”  

First of all, I’d like to thank each Veteran for having served in some capacity in the military for the Greatest Nation in the history of the World. 

From the heart, when I see a Veteran, I see a person who has patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.  Meaning simply, someone who, at some point in life, wrote a check to the United States of America for an amount up to and including his or her life.  No other commitment matches this great value made to our country.

I am proud of my military service I gave and I would do it without hesitation all over again.  RIP for all Veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice and I am wishing all Veterans a Happy Veteran’s Day and may it hold solace to you in your own way…because you deserve it, Veteran. 

(John now lives in Millington, Tennessee, with his wife, Michelle, an active duty Navy nurse, and their two German Shepherd dogs, Warrant (his service dog) and Spike.  John is an avid golfer and enjoys playing the game as it “keeps him humble” and helps him cope with his service-connected disabilities.)
