Happy Veterans Day

By Charlie Downs, Assistant General Manager

Hey Crawdads Nation, Happy Veterans Day.

With all the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) already upon us, we often forget about this day and what it should mean to us. For a lot this is either just another workday, a day off from school or even a day off from work but for the men and women who have served and are currently serving our great nation, it is a day for remembrance and paying tribute to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Let us not forget our men and women who serve and their families, as daily they put themselves in harms way for all of us.

If you get a chance today to attend a Veteran’s day service or, like me, going to visit both of my grandfather’s grave sites as they both served, one in the army and one in the navy, take the time to do so. It will be well worth it.
