I was happy to serve as a presenter at Truckee Meadows Community College's First Generation Celebration to honor those students who are the first in their family to attend and graduate from college. Many of the military personnel and veterans served by my Veterans services program are first generation college students.
Happy Birthday (Nov. 10. 247 years young) to the US Marines!
My brother served in Vietnam and was wounded there. Today he finds his purpose through working with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and continues to serve his comrades and their families.
Every day should be Veterans Day! Please thank a veteran for your freedom, and remember the sacrifices made by the Few, the Proud, the Military brave men and women!
Freedom is not free!
