Today is Veteran's Day, a day to remember the men and women, living and dead, who have offered their service to our country. Some were drafted, some were volunteers, but all spent part of their life in service to America. If you know a veteran, thank them for their service to our country.
Today might also be a good day to think about how you might tangibly help those troops still serving, whether purely as a volunteer, or subject to a stop-loss order.
One place to start is Operation Uplink, which provides phone cards to deployed active duty soldiers and sailors so they can stay in touch with loved ones back home.
You can learn about many other ways to make a real difference in the lives of soldiers and their families by visiting the CT PTA Support our Troops page.
