What would you want your child to say about you? During the first session of a Nurturing Father’s group, dads were asked who they looked up to as role models. As they went around the room, one celebrity after another was named until it was Derrick’s turn. He said “My dad.”
Whether you decide to thank a veteran, active service member, or family member this Veteran’s Day is completely up to you. As the wife of a soldier, I can tell you that being part of the military is not simply a career choice but a way a life. It is a choice that we recommit to each and every day, and like all choices there are both benefits and challenges. Genuine gratitude from others for the sacrifices that military families make is greatly appreciated but never required.
