Just got back from the Veterans Day Parade in Sarasota. First, could not have asked for more perfect weather. Second, it was great to be surrounded by so many fellow Veterans, and also the many who expressed their thanks for our collective service. I also got a free cup of coffee today from Starbucks! (Like I need more coffee).
BTW, yesterday was a huge success. Our Veteran’s Day Campus Cookout was received with much excitement! We made a profit, and we were able to collect a generous amount for both the VX and also to help out a member of the Venice Campus Staff, whom has recently been diagnosed with a serious illness. We would like to say thank you to all who bought a ticket, and all who simply donated!
Well, It’s Veterans Day, by the time this blog posts it will be over. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still thank a Veteran, because you can do that any day of the year.
