Veteran to Veteran
The other day I thanked an older gentleman wearing a Navy baseball cap for his service.
He said, "I will do it again tomorrow if you want me to."
Then he followed up by saying, "Just don't send me back to Vietnam!"
Are you currently serving in the armed forces or are you a Veteran? Did you know that 25% of all deaths each year (about 680,000) are veterans? Help these Heroes at the end of their lives by becoming a hospice volunteer!
Veterans, no matter the branch of the armed forces or the era in which they served share a comradery unlike any other.
