Veteran's Day

The closest I've come to understanding the experience of going to war has been through friends who have and do serve in the military... and books. That said, some of the reads have been good ones. Some have left me proud-- stories of ethical individuals demonstrating humanity while using force overseas (The Heart and The Fist). Some have left me entertained-- stories of intrigue, impressive skill and fancy toys (Rogue Warrior). Some have left me humbled-- stories of the price men and women have paid in the line of duty (The Things They Carried and Unbroken). Thank you, veterans, for your courage in the name of service.
