Today is Armed Forces Day, and let us take a moment to honor the men and women who have served or are currently serving in our forces.
A very small percentage of the population does serve, so they deserve a special recognition for what they do. Far too often, they are simply ignored, or their days, especially Memorial Day or Veterans Day are used as an excuse for sales of stuff.
Regardless of political views, we should remember those who do honorable service, especially because most of us do not have to serve. It is a sacrifice that should be acknowledged.
To all in the forces or who have served–you are in my thoughts.
