Flora over at UCV tells of a recent RTD forum for vets and active duty troops. Flora's son was a speaker at the forum. Flora has the RTD's article posted and it is a good read. A Vietnam vet named Rick Edmunds made a great statement
He asked fellow Richmonders to stop when they see someone in the military and thank them.
I do every time I meet one. I admire their bravery and sacrifice. I support their mission and their goals. I sit here tonight safely because of their sacrifice and bravery and I never pass up the chance to tell them so.
