For all my serving friends, my family veterans, and veteran friends -- thank you so very, very much for my ability to be a darned lucky American.
And a special thank you to my veteran of the day, Albert. He is one of the founders of my little corner of the Fortune 500. He will never see this as I think blogland is something he does not bother with, but he came by my desk looking for chocolate wearing his WWII service ribbon on his suit. Ninety-something years old and proudly wearing his colors to work. Bless him.
