Veterans Day Tribute

.: (You really should read this first!) :.

So at work today we took some time out (at around 2:00pm) to attend the Pinal County 8th Annual Veterans Day Tribute.

We watched the Color Guard and the Fighter Plane (F-16) Fly by, said the pledge of allegiance, and then listened to David Maestas (a veteran of the Air Force) our public works employee, speak.

He gave a pretty heartwarming commentary on the life of his hero father and informed us that often we forget the Veterans who are victims of the tragedies of war. He told stories about Veterans who act 'crazy' but only because no one knows their story or sad experiences that have effected them so deeply.

Overall, it was one of the better speeches I have heard regarding the subject.

Thanks to all the veterans!!!
