Tomorrow is Veterans Day, and I want to offer my thanks to all veterans in all branches and recognize your service and sacrifice.
In my lifetime, I have benefited greatly by spending time with veterans, listening to their stories, and learning. Sometimes these personal stories are lost amidst the broader coverage of world events, and it is important to remember that our troops are individuals with their own stories to tell.
If you are interested in sharing your gratitude for those who have served and continue to serve, I encourage you to think about volunteering at a veterans organization, advocating for veteran support and assistance, or reaching out to see if there is an opportunity to listen, support, or send an old-fashioned letter of thanks. The Mid-Coast Veterans Council is a local resource helping to facilitate connection and assistance to veterans.
As a reminder, Skidompha is closed tomorrow in honor of Veterans Day.
