My father is a Vietnam veteran, so I never forget that Nov. 11 is Veterans Day – he always puts the flag up outside our suburban New York house, and we try to attend an observance at West Point or in the Washington DC area. But most years, it passes by without personal civilian notice. This year, however, a group of Girl Scouts stopped by with a lovely plate of homemade desserts, a small flag and a big thank you card for him.

What a wonderful gesture! Thank you to those Girl Scouts, our active troops and veterans, anyone who personally thanks a veteran today.
