What Does Veterans Day Mean?

I want to first say I may be somewhat prejudiced on this particular topic.  I entered the United States Air Force in November 1968, in the height of the Vietnam conflict.  I remained on active duty and retired in 1989.  I was no different from any other citizens during these 21 years of service.  There were highs, lows and some really mundane duties; however, in retrospect, neither I nor my wife would trade those years for anything else.  I still feel honored to have served.
