Hug your favorite Vet day

While I’ve never been in the military myself, I come from a long line of military veterans. In fact, I’ve never met either one of my grandfathers due to injuries they sustained in combat.

So today is a special day to me – but I’m bummed at the lousy luck I’ve had of finding memorial ceremonies, etc. How are veterans being celebrated in Houston? I found a parade, but there’s no way that can be it.

Any suggestions? How are you thanking the men and women who have given up so much? Regardless of your views on war, past or present, it’s important not to take these sacrifices for granted.

*edit: Okay, the parade was a little bigger than I thought. I feel better.

    I took your advice and went to the local animal hospital where I hugged the first veterinarian I saw.
