Presidents Day from a Veteran’s perspective

One of my clients, I am proud to say, is a WWII Veteran and one of the kindest, nicest fellows any person on this earth could potentially hope to meet. It will be his perspective that I consider today on Presidents Day since he has not only lived long enough to see several Presidents through their term(s) in office, but to see the various methods of management that they employed to keep our nation free and away from serious harm.
After living 90 or more years, it must be exasperating for elder folks that have seen one change after another affect our country and its people. These individuals have lived through things that many of us could not possibly imagine.
Many were born just after WWI ended, so the country was in a flux. Then there was the Great Depression beginning in 1929 and through the better part of the 30s. WWII had its place in their history, especially this particular client, and many wars afterward. I have to say that 9-11 had to have recalled personal memories of hardship.
But this man has had the courage to go on. He continues to believe in America – even if he may be skeptical about some of the actions of some of our Presidents. Through his faith in God, he continues to believe in overall goodness.
It is because of great men – humble men – like this client that it is so easy to show that With Age Comes Respect.
