Hey, boys and girls on this Veterans Day..
I know none of us cats are veterans of any conflict or war, but we have in our circle of friends and family a whole bunch of veterans representing the different branches of the military. The housekeeper talks about how all the branches are represented in her family except for the Coast Guard..I better be careful! She might put me in a uniform and throw me on a boat!
We want to honor those who served our country, but we also want to do something different this Veterans Day. Just a few minutes ago, we found out that about half of returning veterans after WWII went into business for themselves. Most of the time it was a bunch of them who got together and brainstormed. Along with that, we heard it was really tough to get back in the swing of civilian life after harrowing experiences overseas. They did make lasting friendships, though, with those who shared so much and still do so today.
Here's the article that lets us take a glimpse into the world of post-war entrepreneurships (sp?):

So hats off! For some, it'll be wallets out as we support those who decided to strike out on their own
after doing their country proud.
Proud to be an American
and God bless the USA,
