Remembering Those Who Served on Veteran's Day
Today is Veteran's Day. Take a minute to remember those who served, thank those who served for their sacrifice and, if possible, help those who have served our country or who are currently in the armed forces.
Veteran's Day is a big deal in Las Vegas. There is a parade, a run, many restaurants and casinos give all sorts of freebies to vets (I had a nice buffet lunch compliments of the Southpoint Casino which provides free meals to vets each Veteran's day; bonus, while I was standing in line I got to thank a WWII vet for his service), the Lt Dan Band and Gary Sinisi were entertaining the troops and everyone else downtown this weekend, and the MGM hosted Veteran's Day weekend for wounded warriors.
It made for a very celebratory atmosphere and reiterated the fact that those who serve and protect our country are true heroes and should be recognized as such. If you are a vet, thanks for your service.
