On Veterans Day, members of Staff Group 15C went to the nursing home at the Veterans Hospital in Leavenworth to visit with Veterans that are part of our rich heritage who have served in wars past. It was inspiring to hear stories of their service to our nation and the pride these Veterans expressed for our continuing service. Every service was represented at the nursing home as well as each major conflict from WWII to Iraq and Afghanistan. While our visit was inspirational for those of us currently on active duty, I was personally motivated by the veteran’s reaction to our visit. As I already mentioned, they enjoyed telling their stories with pride, but our visit and the questions we asked brought their pride of service to the forefront. It was a Veterans Day I will never forget. Thank you.
