Today we pause to acknowledge our Nation’s veterans.
We remember those who answered the call to serve in order to preserve, protect, and defend our freedoms and our way of life.
From Vietnam to Iraq, from Normandy to Afghanistan, we will never forget their sacrifice and valor.
Today and every day we are thankful to these brave men and women and their families.
Please take a moment to visit the Wounded Warrior Project
and consider giving back to those who have given so much.
Thank you, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.
And from us here at the Mental Recession -Thank you to the servicemen and women who serve our country through dedication and sacrifice. You are true heroes, allowing the rest of us to enjoy the freedom and democracy that we experience every single day. God bless, and thank you.
To help celebrate Veteran’s Day, below is a picture of our country’s oldest living vet, 108-year-old Richard Arvine Overton, voting in this past week’s election …

Last year, Overton celebrated Veteran’s Day with some ‘whiskey and cigars.’
Overton served in the U.S. Army, fighting in the South Pacific between 1942 and 1945, including stops in Hawaii, Guam, Palau, and Iwo Jima.
