Veteran’s Day 2014

Quick post today.  I am trying to get out of the office here before the “Ice Age” hits.  I will tell you one thing, I am not sure the weather is any worse than it has ever been in Nebraska, but I am sure the hype is WAY MORE than it used to be.

I digress.

I am betting most of you know tomorrow is Veteran’s Day.  Yep, that means a holiday for me tomorrow.  Yesssss!  However, may I suggest that it is real easy for us to celebrate a day off from work without remembering why it is a holiday.  I am betting like me, every one reading this knows several veteran’s.  Tell them “THANKS”!  The freedom and prosperity we have, the opportunities to freely enjoy the outdoors we love are due to the efforts of a lot of folks and that certainly includes our Veteran’s.  Their service has made our country what it is today.  Uncle, cousins, in-laws in my family that have served–Thank you!  Take a minute and remember those Veteran’s in your family too, in fact, if you can, tell ’em “thanks”, maybe even share some time in the field or on the water with them.
