Today it is Veterans day which celebrates all of the people who serve our country in the military. This is the day when we recognize the sacrifices our veterans have made!
Soldiers risk much more than their lives as military service can lead to physical and mental disabilities including losing a limb, PTSD, a traumatic brain injury, or even asthma or cancer from toxic chemicals.
These injuries are so common that there are Veteran Affair Compensations which give benefits to those who were injured or got an illness in active duty.
Recognizing Veterans Day is simple, just take a couple minutes to acknowledge the people who serve our country.
