Sunday Special: Honoring Those Who Served

Someone once said that “freedom is never free.” On this Veterans Day, I’d like to thank all the military men and women who have served our country. (Thanks, also, to those who are currently serving in our armed forces.)

Special recognition goes out to my father, who served in the U.S. Army in the mid-to-late 1960s. During that time, he worked in telecommunications at military posts both in Germany and stateside. He went on to use those skills (and then some) for another forty-plus years at AT&T. Thank you for your service, Dad!
