What is a Veteran? A “Veteran” - whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to, and including his life.” That is honor. And there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact. - Author Unknown
