Veterans Day becomes more real when you get to know someone who has served. Marc is an electrician with A Plus Electric. As a sergeant in the Marines, he saw first-hand what our military does on behalf of our country. He recalls the time his group evacuated the U.S. embassy in Albania. “Terrorists had threatened to blow it up, and our job was to convert a soft target into a hard target.” Other times his outfit pursued precision raids. “Our orders were to go after high value targets and come back with intel.” Put together the Albanian experience and time spent in Africa and you begin to get clarity on what our military means to us. Marc’s years of service illustrate a willingness to devote part of his life to our country and take risks to life and limb along the way.
This Veterans Day is an opportunity to salute Marc and the thousands of others who have sacrificed for the United States. Do you have a veteran close by? November 11th, or any day, is a good time to say “thank you.”
