There were 2.1 million active duty military, and reserve in 2016.

The VA stated in 2014 they estimated there were 22 million veterans in the US.

I am not going to get into homeless vets, vets with ptsd, substance abuse.

Veterans Day is coming. We all know someone who is active, reserve, or retired military.

Not all came home whole.

They all deserve our appreciation, and the help that they need to be members of our society.

Thank you for your service.

We owe you a great debt.

And we need to pay it.
