Honoring veterans

Today is Veterans Day. Please post a comment to honor those who bravely protected our nation through their military service in times of war and peace.

In a related note, a Lower Paxton teen is working on an Eagle Scout project to honor fallen veterans.

We say "thank you" when a store clerk hands us change. We wave "thank you" when a motorist yields us the right of way. We thank our friends when they pay us compliments. If you think about it, we probably use the words "thank you" or some variation of it at least a dozen times a day. But how do you thank someone for saving the world?

When you ask young men and women to endure great hardships, drastically change their lifestyles and possibly give their lives for you - the words "thank you," seem woefully insufficient.
