Happy Veterans Day!
November 11th, Veterans Day, is a day to celebrate veterans of all branches of the United States military. We honor our brave men and women in uniform. After all the fighting is done, however, there is also much day to day work that needs to be taken care of for our veterans. This is one of the reasons that the Department of Veterans Affairs has just this week launched a new blog called VAntage Point—Dispatches from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. VAntage Point is meant to be a place for veterans and the VA Department to communicate openly. Not only will it be a forum for the VA to post news and information, but, maybe more importantly, it is meant for veterans to tell stories of fallen comrades, to complain about the red tape involved in getting benefits, anything and everything that is important to them. Go take a look, and have a happy Veterans Day!
