Ding, dong, DADT is dead!

It’s Veterans’ Day.

I guess I should do a post about Veterans’ Day, since people act like you hate freedom or something if you don’t talk about soldiers’ sacrifices at least once a year.

Mom, Dad, Captain Awesome’s dad – props.

But you shouldn’t just honor veterans in your family. On Veterans’ Day, you’re supposed to think about ALL the veterans who helped you get to live the free life you live today. There are really far too many to count, but I’d like to nod to just a few. A moment of silence, please.

Crazy Horse.

John Brown.

Nat Turner.

Fred Hampton.

Chief Joseph.

Denmark Vesey.

General Tubman.

Red Eagle.

My metaphorical hat goes off to all of you.
