with gratitude

found on Pinterest:

"What is a veteran? A veteran - whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for an amount of up to and including his life."

Thank you.


  1. This quote really touched me today. My father is a veteran, as was my father-in-law. And, now my son is seriously considering enlisting.

  2. That truth is more striking the older one gets, I think. It stuns me more all the time that people chanced to give up their lives for [me, you, each other, all of us, anyone].
