Last week, Heather Whaling emailed me and asked if I would be willing to help out on the next round of #WhyWeCelebrate for Veteran’s Day. This is a movement she and Justin Goldsborough started over 4th of July to honor our veteran’s and thank them for their service.
I wanted to include the kids I work with, which happens to be in Leeton, Missouri at the moment. When I asked the kids on Monday if any of them would have an interest in sharing their thoughts about veteran’s on video, I got an overwhelming response. There are days these kids drive me up the wall, and then they go and say things like this and TOTALLY REDEEM THEMSELVES!!
I’m man enough to admit that more than once putting this video together, I teared up. It’s amazing to hear what these kids have to say, especially since the military is such a huge presence in their lives as Whiteman Air Force Base is a very short drive from where they live. Feel free to share this post and video with whomever you think would enjoy it.
