Over at Chuck for I had a bit to say about having a Day for vets and that there might be a bit more to do than just that. Since Ron has posted a bit on the subject I won't rehash my post here, but I will suggest just a couple ways to honor the vets:
Let's make fewer of them and be more careful about it
Ask a vet today what they need, and then ask for it, and then demand it
If that seems a bit much, consider - just exactly what words do you have that are adequate to express our debt and gratitude?
