Thursday, November 11th, is Veteran’s Day. It is the one day on the calendar that is set aside to remember their courage and sacrifice.
There are a number of veterans who work at the USCCA Headquarters, many I consider good friends. I have thanked them and others for their service and many have said they were just doing their job. And many have been uncomfortable with the accolades from people they barely know.
One veteran made a suggestion to help us give more sincere appreciation for their service - ask them what branch they served in. Asked them how long they served. Ask them something appropriate about their service. That way you will get a better idea of why you’re thanking them.
To all of the veterans here, we would love for you to share your branch and the years you served.
While we don’t know you all individually, your fellow veterans at the USCCA have shown us the integrity and courage of the American soldier.
With our deepest regards, on behalf of the USCCA,
United States Navy - 10 Years
Stay safe out there.
