Happy Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day, so if you know any veterans, go out and thank one. If you don't know any veterans to thank, you could always start with this blog's resident veteran M. Simon, who also has his own blog.

My father served in World War II and my grandfather served in World War I, but they're dead and I can't thank them. However, I did donate here, per Glenn Reynolds' suggestion. (And I'm happy to see that Google has finally decided that the people who risked their lives for this country are worth remembering with a picture and a link.)

Each year, the Department of Veterans Affairs has an official Veterans Day poster, and here's this year's poster:

Thank you, veterans!

MORE: If you have five minutes to spare, this video from Reason TV (showing World War II veterans visiting the World War II memorial) is really good.
