Above and Beyond the Call of Duty

Today is Veteran's Day. A time in which we should all pause and say Thank You to a Veteran.

You do not have to agree with the conflict in which they fight to offer your support to them. Knowing that the 'folks back home' are waiting with open arms is an important thing when you are stationed thousands of miles away. And the fight does not end upon their return. We need to continue our support to see that the military men and women of this country receive the treatment and/or support which they deserve - whether it be medical, psychological, physical therapy, counseling; the list goes on.

I would also like to make note of a special group who gave an enormous amount during WWII. The Navajo Code Talkers. The contribution Native Americans have made in defense of our country - and our government, the same government who has committed numerous atrocities upon them - speaks volumes. To read more about the Navajo Code Talkers, visit the blog, Gothic Tea Society.
