We featured two veterans on "The Real Story" Thursday who gave a lot to keep this country safe. They have multiple amputations as part of their sacrifice. They aren’t asking for any special attention or anyone to feel sorry for them. They don't want peoples' pity. Instead they want to inspire.

So what can we do? We've all seen that some airlines allow vets to board their airplanes before anyone else. And some restaurants offer free meals to our vets. 

But what about something more?

Vets tells us they want leadership opportunities, they want jobs. They want our support when they come home. 

The military is full of strong people and leaders. The best thing vets say we can do is buy from companies owned and operated by veterans, and hire vets or help them get job training.  

Vets tells us they want leadership opportunities, they want jobs. They want our support when they come home.

Of course its always meaningful to also say "thank you for your service." But we should honor and think about our vets not just on Veterans Day or Memorial Day, but every day.
