Veterans Day

November 11th, 2010

11-11-10What better way to honor a Veteran than to talk to a veteran. I talked to Veterans and currently active Marines from their 20s to their 80s today. Being in Jacksonville, North Carolina, home of Camp Lejeune, there is a very high percentage of retired and active Marines somewhere near. One proud 20 year Marine Corps Veteran told me of his family, the Harris family. His immediate family has over 100 years of service to our country. I was honored to meet his wife, daughter and grand-daughter. His pride showed as he talked of family and country. He protected the American dream for all of us and is now living the American dream. He runs the A-1 laundry and dry cleaning business I visited today. A generous, caring, proud man with a kind side to him. I am honored to have met such a man. Semper Fi
Thank you to all Veterans for protecting our freedoms. The Kindness Bus, with all of it’s profound messages, that I drive around this country, is made possible by your protection of my Freedom of Speech. Welcome home and thank you to all of you.
