I didn’t post yesterday which was veterans day again. This is a repost of one I did in 2010. God bless all you veterans who served selflessly and helped to keep us free.

I had to post again today, because listening to the Greg Garrison show, he ended the show with a tribute to the American Soldier that I couldn’t let go. It is one of the best I have ever heard, so I got the transcript of it, and will copy it to here. Hope you all enjoy it.
In this, he essentially says that though you can’t tell a vet by looking at him, you can be assured, that no matter what he or she is, how smart or dumb they are, they are heroes. Here is what Greg Garrison this morning gave as his tribute to the American soldier on this Veterans day, of 2010:
Some veteran’s bear visible signs of their service. A missing limb, a jagged scar a certain look in the eye. Others may carry the evidence inside them. A pin holding a bone together, a piece of shrapnel in the leg or perhaps another sort of inner steel…..The souls ally, forged in the refinery of adversity.
Except in parades however, the men and women who have kept America safe wear no badge or emblem. You can’t tell a vet, just by looking.
Though what is a vet?
He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia, sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn’t run out of fuel.
