Remember The Vets!

November 11th, 2010

veterans day topIn case your coffee hasn’t kicked in yet this morning, it’s Veterans Day, the 11th day of the 11th month.

There’s quite a few people all around you — you may know a few, be related to a few — that did a whole helluva lot just so you can read Joe’s daily screeds about the Bucs (and the Bolts and the Rays and of course, Rachel Watson).

So if you know someone that served once upon a time, just say thanks. Or, Joe recommends what Joe does, a tradition he started a few years ago.

Later this afternoon, Joe will walk into a local VFW hall — an American Legion post will suffice — and step up to the bar and buy a round for the vets. Joe will then promptly walk out once the bill is paid.

It’s a small token of appreciation for what quite a few did so slobs like us wouldn’t be forced to eat sauerkraut each day with a side of sushi and subjected to soccer.

Also, try to keep those who are currently serving overseas to protect us from the animals that fly planes into buildings in your thoughts at least once today.

You’ll be better off for it, trust Joe.
