I shook two veterans’ hands today

As an elderly caregiver, you just never know who you will have the privilege of getting to care for. I am entirely blessed to have not one but two U.S. Military veterans that I serve. One of my two veterans is going to be 92 and he served in WWII. My other vet just turned 80 and was in the Armor Division; deployed to Louisiana. Just before going overseas, after many practice rounds, they were all ready to go and all of a sudden they were called down. They were no longer ready to rock and roll. Needless to say, they are both veterans. I am grateful to both – especially the WWII vet (of course).
I was proud to shake both of their hands and thank them for their service. These men are just two more reasons that I want to show that With Age Comes Respect for they respected me; one before I was even born. I am so proud to say that I know them and even more proud to be able to serve them! I only wish what I do could even try to compare with what they have done for me, but I could never compete with their level of dedication. That is why I am so very grateful!
I would be happy to serve even more veterans. I owe them. We all owe them! Thank you kindly vets for your service! Call me if you need me to serve you. I am ready, willing and able! Happy Memorial Day!
