This week we celebrate Veterans Day.
It's a day set aside to honor veterans who served in the military during war time or peace time. I think every day should be Veterans Day.
Too often we take our veterans for granted. Many of them spend weeks, if not years, away from their families and loved ones. This personal sacrifice often includes war time injuries our veterans have to live with the rest of their lives. The ArkLaTex is a special place and one reason is because of the large number of veterans that call our communities home.
They are your next door neighbor, your little league coach or a United Way volunteer.
So as Veterans Day comes around every year, let's make that our reminder to thank and appreciate our veterans all the time.
I'm James Smith.
