Happy Veterans Day!

World War II MemorialTo anyone who is a veteran, today I salute you. Too often we go through life without ever thinking of those who protect us by serving in the armed forces. In addition to their sacrifice, there is also often a sacrifice by the family left at home while the veteran serves overseas. The remaining parent must function as essentially a single parent.

Serving in the armed forces is hard for all involved and I appreciate and salute those who sacrifice their lives, their time, and their family life in defense of their country.World War II Memorial Quote

Without question, technology has made it easy to remain in touch while away from home. Our soldiers today can take advantage of cell phones, email, video confrencing, blogs, flickr, myspace, facebook, to communicate in ways that prior generations never dreamed of. Hopefully, these communication improvements make their service just a little more comfortable.
