Remembering more about veterans

When I was a kid, we had these cool neighbors, Nancy and Jim. They used to show Dobermans all over and bred them for income. Later in life, Nancy decided to go back to school to become a nurse.
When she graduated, she found a job at the VA Hospital in Battle Creek, Michigan. I was so proud of her. She took care of veterans that mainly fought in Vietnam. I just remember how horrendous that these stories of woe were.
At the time I could not even consider doing what Nancy was doing; couldn’t imagine taking care of another human being in need – especially those that had seen things that I could never possibly imagine – or want to imagine! These men were all special cases and were suffering greatly for their service to this nation.
Now I cannot think of anything but serving those in need. Whether or not my clients are veterans is beside the point. They all need something and as their caregiver, I am ready, willing and able to attend to just that!
I feel as if my position in life is to extend myself to the aging, hurting, longing crowd and show them that With Age Comes Respect. It is truly the least that I feel I can do for so many that require so much.
