One last Veterans' Day Post

Yesterday, our church had a Chili Cook Off  to honor our veterans.  My mother organized and put on this wonderful event.  I wish I had pictures to share. It was very well attended and several men spoke about their service.

What I learned, I want to share with you:  Ask a veteran to tell you about their service!    I think there are stories that haven't been told.  Give someone a chance to share it if they want to (or can).  
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." 
- John F. Kennedy
