Veterans Day 2016 should find us a new President-Elect of the United States of America after a long noisy divisive campaign. I and hope millions of Americans will go forward to work for the betterment of all American Citizens through wide spread economic growth.
 
Approaching the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, the "war to end all wars," was originally honored as Armistice Day, celebrating the armistice that ended that war on the 11th day of the 11th month of the year at the 11th hour! A hope for world peace that has yet to be realized. Armistice Day changed to Veterans Day by an act of Congress in 1954 to honor all of our military veterans of all wars and conflicts that protected us the American people for all these many years and conflicts.
 
We should especially thank those that have served and are serving our country tomorrow, thank them when you see them in their regular daily routine, such as waiting for a cup of coffee at a local coffee shop, standing in line with us waiting to board a train or plane for the next duty assignment or going home to visit family. A nod, a "thank you", a smile to the men and women is not too much to ask of all of us.
 
The moment you spend just being thoughtful, think how your father, grandfather, mother, brother or sister would have appreciated that when they served in uniform.

That's what I think...

Steven J. Rose, ACE
President/CEO
