Thank you all.
Happy Vet's day fellow brothers in arms.
That old veteran.
Look past the looks of the wrinkled old man and you will see a man who was once young and strong.
Look past the hardened and cold exterior and you will see a man who once loved his family, protected and took care of them.
Look past the disheveled man who stands there, broken, battered, weary and shaking and you will see the warrior he once was.
This man has walked through the valley of death, a world of hate, the gates of hell and violence all around him and survived everything that was thrown at him. He is old, weary and tired. But he continues on.
He loves his family, friends and country and if called upon today, would put his uniform on and give it his best fight.
Know that the old man, who looks worn down and weary, is so, because he defended your country, your rights and your freedom.
Under the exterior of the wrinkled old man, is the heart of a warrior who would love nothing more, than to be that warrior again.
This man, or woman, could be anyone you know. Give them the respect they earned.
And if they are gone, remember them for the sacrifices they made for you.
I'd like to take a moment to thank all veterans for their service today.
I don't know if this link will work, it has for some, and not for others. Computer savvy individuals may be able to make it work.
Nope. Didn’t work for me…. 😌

Weird. I searched it and found it looks like the same linkhttps://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/news/2021/11/23/tampa-veteran-struggles-with-job-search--heals-through-hockey-
It's the old em dash "--" versus the en dash "-" that killed the link it seems in the portion of the link "search--heals".
Who even uses the em dash anymore?
Yeah, I have to admit that I do too. I even used to use the Alt Code— 0151—to enter the true longer em dash rather than typing in two consecutive en dashes--but using a phone more and more has kind of killed that for me lately.
