Honoring Our Veterans

Thank you for the sacrifices you and your families are making. Our Vietnam Veterans have taught us that no matter what are positions may be on policy, as Americans and patriots, we must support all of our soldiers with our thoughts and our prayers. -Zack Wamp

As a generation, baby boomers are surrounded by Veterans. Our fathers served in different branches during WWII and the Korean War, and as we became of fighting age, 30,000 young Utahns served the “action” that was Viet Nam.  Now, our children and possibly, grandchildren are fighting in the Middle East.

We are also an outspoken generation. We were divided during the Viet Nam War and I think it is safe to say, we still hold powerful views on the right and wrong of fighting.

Still, today is Veteran’s Day. It is a day where, as the quote above states, no matter our political positions, we need to honor our Veterans by thanking them for their contribution to our country.
