Today is Veteran's Day in the United States and Remembrance Day in Australia and Canada. (The U.K. observed the same on Sunday.) This is a picture of my grandfather, Eldon L. Bangerter, who served in Europe during World War II. I use to call Grandpa Bang every Veteran's Day to thank him for his service and sacrifice. He passed away in 2006, so this is the best I can do now.
To all of our men and women in uniform, past and present, thank you for standing on the front lines and ensuring our domestic tranquility. I hope one day we won't require your services because we'll live in peace and harmony, but until then, I am grateful. Thank you.
