KOUTZ, NATIONAL COMaN[ANDER OF THE AMERICAN LEGION When people think of veterans, they often think of warriors, but Hurricane Sandy offers just the latest reminder of the significant humanitarian and often times life-saving work per- formed by our veterans on a daily basis. As Sandy was still wreak- ing devastation on the east coast, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard members mobilized on the opposite coast -- at March Air Reserve Base in California -- to trek nearly 3,000 miles to assist their fel- low Americans. The Navy sent large-deck amphibious ships off the shores of New York and New lersey, where Marines, soldiers and Coast Guardsmen were busy res- cuing storm victims, rebuild- ing ravaged areas and pro- Every Day is Veterans Day viding food and fuel. Memorial Day is appropri- ately set aside to honor our fallen war veterans - those who made the Supreme Sacrifice for this great coun- try. Unfortunately, we are unable to personally show our appreciation to these heroes. Veterans Day, how- ever, is intended to honor all of our military veterans, including the nearly 23 mil- lion living men and women who are still among us. Sometimes all that is needed is a simple 'thank you' directed at the veteran or the family member for his or her sacrifice. Part of that sacrifice too often includes unemploy- ment or underemployment when the veteran's military service is over. Companies should under- stand that it's smart busi- ness to hire veterans, and when members of the Guard and Reserves deploy, it is America's business to ensure that their civilian careers do not suffer. We must not forget the unique health care needs of women veterans. There are more than 1.2 million women in America today who have worn the uni- form and women play a piv- otal role in our mission in Afghanistan. We must always remem- ber those veterans who have given their lives for us long after they stopped wear- ing their military uniforms. While their service obliga- tions may have expired, their love of country endured. Chances are that ff you sur- veyed your local police or fire department, you would find that a disproportionate- ly high number of its mem- bers are veterans. While fewer than 10 per- cent of Americans can claim the honorable title "U.S. military veteran: this spe; Page 13 cial group often provide the vital services that enable our communities to function. And it's important to remember not only the price that is paid by so many vet- erans to maintain our free- dom - but the price paid by their heartbroken families as well. We must heed the words of our first Commander- in-Chief, General George Washington who said in 1798, "The willingness with which our young people will fight in any war, no matter how justified, shall be direct- ly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their country: Born of their extraor- dinary accomplishments comes our extraordinary debt. And for those accom- plishments and for their dedication, we must always be grateful. 40 BO()TllS Antiques - Art - Books Candy - Ceramics - Crafts Jewelry - Jellies - Needlework Photography - Weaving Wood & Metal Work Much More FOOD SERVI2D BY At,PINE DI/LI VOTE FOR SAVINGS TO 2-yr plan with data required THOMASON FUNERAL HOME & CRE,XlATORY Fa_milv Owned and Operated - Burial Services - ere-plmning Options - Cremation Services - Monuments 221 E.
