Thank a vet today

Many of you will be doing Veterans Day stories today. No, it's not just a holiday or an opportunity to score a bargain at the mall. It's a day to honor those who served and still serve our country.

And if you don't know the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day, well, as my dad would say, "Look it up."

It is absolutely appropriate as a news person to thank a Veteran at any time, but especially today. "Thank you for your service" is always a nice gesture.

If your station let's you wear flag pins, fine. If not, you can always sneak some red white and blue clothing into your outfit.

Just don't miss the real meaning of the day.
