This Veterans Day is a bittersweet one for the town where I live and work. Today the VFW had their annual ceremony, and the local Elks Lodge had a free lunch for any veteran that cared to attend. But it was also just over six weeks ago that we laid to rest a young veterean, age 24, who lost his life in Afghanistan. I know mine wasn’t the only heavy heart today as we honored all of our veterans. The memory of that rainy Monday afternoon when we laid Daniel to rest is still a fresh and far too painful memory. I sincerely hope the communities where you fine people live to not have to go through what the young man’ family and we did. This has to stop.
