Our Veterans Are the True Heroes

By: Karl Nelson, NYC Correspondent/Social Media Exec.

Sunday, November 11th was Veterans Day — a day when we celebrate the true heroes, those who have put their lives on the line for Americans in the past and those who are doing so in the present. Many of today’s veterans don’t have the luxury of seeing their families everyday. Many of our past veterans aren’t able to wake up today free of traumatic thoughts about their war experiences. This is why it’s important for America to do their part to ensure that every single veteran is accounted for. We have veterans in this country today who are having a difficult time adjusting to a “normal” day-to-day life again, and they need to be a top priority everywhere in America.

I spoke with my good friend Lawrence Green who is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force. Serving in the U.S. Air Force has tremendously impacted Green’s perspective regarding our past and present servicemen and women. | KMN
