You will find that I think and talk about veterans a lot.
There is a reason: My dad was a World War II Veteran serving in the Army Air Corp. My husband Jim’s dad is a World War II vet who married an Army Nurse. My husband and my brother Bill both are Vietnam vets. Bill suffers the consequences of agent orange from that war.
I don’t think of us as a military family, we’re not. We were just another Kansas family that did its part.
We owe veterans a debt that can never be fully repaid but I am committed to keep trying to pay that debt to every veteran and their families. It matters. — Melissa Gregory
