Every November, as our nation pauses to honor the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, I think about the men in my family who served our great nation.
Last week, Jacksonville’s Military Affairs and Veterans Department held its second annual Vetrepreneur Summit.
Each week, I issue birthday and anniversary letters to citizens, celebrating the milestones they’ve reached in their lives or their organizations. Last week was incredibly special in that I was afforded and opportunity to recognize a long-time anchor in the community.
Though I never served, I learned to honor those who have from my experiences with those in my family who answered the call. I had the chance to honor one of those heroes – my dad – during this year's Veterans Day Parade.
