Thank someone today

Go ahead and do it.
It doesn’t cost a dime and it’s worth a fortune.

Today is Veteran’s Day and it always feels good when you pay your respect for the men and women that have given everything, including the most precious gift of life, in the battlegrounds.

Stand up for the cause of helping a veteran in need, like Matt Richardson, an Army Airbone Range injured in Afghanistan. For him, High Plains Scuba Center, in Fort Collins, is hosting a Benefit Underwater Hold' em Poker Tournament.

(I heard in the radio this morning that Richardson needs funding to get a special bed that will help him to manage the grueling pain his injuries cause).

Val, at Babalú, has a great collection of posts and articles honoring our veterans.

While in the mood, you should go and check the Veteran's History Project of the Library of Congress, a project that relies on volunteers to collect and preserve stories of wartime service.

To all veterans with us today, and to all those that have lost their lives:
Thank you.
