This is that special day on which we focus on all of the men and women who have served in the United States military. It could have been this week in Afghanistan or seven decades ago in World War II. (By the way, this Dec. 7 will be the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack that prompted the U.S. to enter that war.) The person could have served in war or peace time, in combat or other aspects of the great military machine. We honor them all today.
