And also, I'd like to say, Happy Veterans' Day to all the brave men and women of the US Armed Forces, and also overseas and international.
Thank you and your families, for your bravery and many sacrifices you've made in service to your country.
Also, here's someone else that wanted to say thank you as well....
Couldn't have said it better myself....
