Veteran’s Day has always been the holiday for the “old guys;” those guys in their Vietnam War Vet baseball caps, with leather jackets and old Army unit patches; or the even older World War II vets, with their walkers and slow shuffles. There are not many of them left, God bless ’em.
Veteran’s Day was also about saying “thank you” to a vet, for their service. Maybe vets in church were asked to stand, so they could be acknowledged. Maybe a vet got a free meal at a local Applebees, or there might have been a cookout at a VFW post. You know, no big fuss.
