A Quote for Veteran's Day

"Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state." Thomas Jefferson

I can remember our country's military draft, the lottery, and young men fleeing the United States for Canada, so they did not have to serve in the military.

Things changed. There is no draft and no more lottery. Young men sign-up without coercion, and many serve their country with dignity and grace. They come back to civilian life with experience, and a sense of purpose. They attend college, join the work force, and fall in love. Some have problems, including a rather high suicide rate. November 11th is Veteran's Day in the United States of America. Please...hug a Veteran!

Help me celebrate my birthday this month by reading one of my books. You can find all the links HERE
