Take a minute and thank a veteran

I’ve posted about this before, but got an email today from a friend of mine about a family member who was in the army and just died in Iraq.

These people are true heroes.  They let us bitch and moan and whine about irrelevant things like software development. 

Perhaps it is the Lutheran in me, but it really doesn’t matter what your political stance is, or if you think the efforts in the Middle East are worth doing or a total mistake, the soldiers on the ground deserve our thanks and our respect regardless.  Always show respect, especially for those that do things for us that most of us (at least this is true for me) could never possibly do. 

If you see a veteran, take a second and thank them. It’s the very least they deserve.
