The 1% [Veterans Day]

Less than 1% of the American population serves in the military.  In honor of Veterans Day, let’s honor those brave few who have chosen to undertake a service that involves sacrifices and risks which few people will ever understand.  There are few more cherished privileges than being an American, and even this would not be possible without the selfless efforts of generations upon generations of courageous servicemen.  They charged headfirst into hell knowing that they might not make it back out.

So here’s to you, the 1%.  From Bunker Hill to Omaha Beach to Iwo Jima to Mogadishu to Fallujah….Thank you for all of it.  It’s an honor to share the home of the brave.

Tribute: To the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines

For those whose service cost everything: Yellow Stars
