It wasn't the reward that mattered
or the recognition you might harvest.
It was your depth of commitment,
the product of your devotion.
These were the things that counted in life.
When you gave purely the honor came in giving,
And that was honor enough.
I had the joy of hearing an interview on Friday with Marcus Luttrell. When he was thanked for his service to our country, he said, "You don't need to thank us for what we do - it's our honor." Then, he spoke of the honor of serving our country. It was humbling. Once again, reminding us that these are special people - better than most of us - who understand the gift of service and commitment.
We all know Veterans - take a moment today and thank them for the gift they gave to all of us of service and commitment.
Thank you, all....
