There is no group of individuals who deserve our love, respect and gratitude more than our veterans. I give thanks daily for the sacrifice our men and women in uniform have made for us. I try to never miss an opportunity to shake a hand or say thank you when I encounter someone who has served this great nation.
It was on this date in 1973 that the Paris Peace Accords, that was intended to put an end to the Vietnam War, was signed. It would be a couple more years before it was really all over but this was to be the end. This was the first military conflict that I was familiar with while growing up.
