Happy Veterans' Day everybody. There's no point in me going into great depth about why this is important, because it should be obvious to all Americans. Regardless of your political affiliation or opinion of any particular war, our veterans deserve the utmost respect and we should do everything possible to honor them. My grandfather fought the Nazis in World War II and I grew up hearing firsthand accounts of that war. Still, I can't imagine what those guys and gals have to go through in combat, or what they live with afterward. If you're a veteran, thanks for everything.
Here's a quick clip of President Obama at Arlington National Cemetary this morning:
PS: If you're reading this blog from the UK or Europe, happy Armistice Day.
