Our veterans are some of the most special people in our world. They have sacrificed so much for our freedom and security. On Veterans Day, let’s take a moment to thank them for their service and to celebrate their humor, resilience, and strength.

Here are a few humorous and appreciative thoughts about our veterans:

  • Veterans are like fine wine: they get better with age.
  • Veterans are like diamonds: precious and rare.
  • Veterans are like superheroes: they have the power to make the world a better place.
  • Veterans are like angels: they watch over us and keep us safe.
  • Veterans are like legends: their stories will be told for generations to come.

Thank you to all our veterans for your service. We are forever grateful.

Characterizations: moving, right on!, well written


  1. Dave Ventre says:

    Vets have NEVER been taken care of properly by the country and government they served and sacrificed for. We probably gave Revolutionary War vets the shaft.

  2. Kevin, yours is a lovely tribute to all those who’ve served and put their lives on the line, literally.
    Thank you!

  3. Betsy Pfau says:

    Amen. Lovely sentiments, Kevin.

  4. Agreed, Kevin, and enjoyed your approach to the topic, although…

    I must opine that, despite the courage, bravery, service, and sacrifice, too many lives, hearts, and minds have been misspent on cynical, misdirected, brutal and just-plain-stupid foreign military “expeditions.”

  5. Laurie Levy says:

    My son-in-law works for the VA. Too many veterans don’t receive the services they need.

  6. Jim Willis says:

    A concise, moving tribute to our nation’s vets!
