Since the very first shots were fired in Lexington on a 1775 July morning during sunrise, over 1.4 million ultimately brave people have given their lives, serving in the US Military to keep America strong and free. Add the countless veterans wounded plus those who served or are on the job today. Let’s make some happy noise: Take the time to thank a veteran for their sacrifice. Buy them a coffee, give them a big smile…let’s make it our business and goal to acknowledge what they do for each of us. Their courage is contagious.
