When we attend public events in South Carolina, we witness an outpouring of respect for veterans. Whether it’s an outdoor concert, a ballgame or a theater performance; there is always a few minutes set aside to recognize veterans in the audience. Sometimes it’s a general announcement but other times it’s highlighting by years of service or the branch in which they served. As each one stands to be recognized they are humble and appreciative of the recognition. Yes, folks for me, it’s always a “goosebumps on your arms” moment.
In a world where there seems to be fewer heroes, veterans are on my list. I salute your courage and your sacrifice. Thank you from an American who truly appreciates your willingness to serve our country.
