This Veteran’s Day, The Harriman Team would like to take this opportunity to stop a minute and thank all the veterans, past and present, who have helped keep this great country free. As we have said in the past, we have a close connection to the military: I am a Viet Nam veteran, Pat was a military wife, and we have children who either are now or have been in the service. For all our veterans do for us, we owe it to them to take a few moments out of our busy schedules to thank them for what they do for us. The sacrifices they make, the hardships they endure, and the courage they display all entitle them to our respect, esteem and admiration.
Also, our hearts go out to the families who lost loved ones in the recent shootings at Fort Hood, Texas. It’s bad enough to lose someone close to you in military combat, but when unfortunate circumstances such as those at Fort Hood happen, they can only serve to draw us closer to the ones left behind, and focus our attention on the trials and tribulations they go through every day. May they take comfort from those whose love and support surrounds them, and may those who lost their lives rest in everlasting peace.
