Support our Veterans!

Thursday's Editorial - November 5, 2015


1. The purpose of Veterans Day is to to honor America's veterans for their service and sacrifice. Veterans Day is observed on November 11.  In September 2013, Travis founded the Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization, formed to benefit and assist wounded and injured veterans. The foundation's mission is to support combat-wounded veterans and their families.  After reading Travis Mills' story, checking out the websites and watching the video under "Resources," how does his idea for a fully accessible "smart home" retreat for our combat wounded, disabled veterans and their families inspire you?

2.  What two words do you think best describe Travis' attitude toward his situation and that of his fellow soldiers? Explain your answer.
