YOUR TURN: Veterans Day

This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Joan Albert. Albert went to our Facebook page to comment on a story about Veterans Day and to remember the service of her own family members. In her words:

My grandfather was a drill sergeant for the Army during World War II. He led and fought for our freedom. My uncle served during Vietnam, his son served during the Gulf War, his grandson is currently enlisted also. My father-in-law served in the Navy during the Korean War. I'm a proud American. I come from a long line of men who were willing to give their lives for everyone's freedom. How do you say thank you for that? I pray for those who are currently serving, and for our veterans. They deserve so much more. Respect them. Honor them. Pray for them. And, God Bless America.

That’s Joan Albert’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
