Veterans Day 2015

To honor those that have served in the military this Veterans Day I put forth a quote by Jennifer Granholm, former Governor of the State of Michigan from 2003-2010.

She says the following in a blog post on May 26, 2012 when discussing congressional funding for veterans. "Be Clear: we can't equate spending on veterans with spending on defense. Our strength is not just in the size of our defense budget, but in the size of our hearts, in the size of our gratitude for their sacrifice. And that's not just measured in words or gestures."

Let us remember that it is our obligation to not only honor our veterans but to take care of them as well. As all of us know, we have a lot of work still to do to fulfill that obligation.

Happy Veterans Day 2015.
