They don't make much money.
They don't make much fuss.
They don't badger, or whine.
They don't mope or moan.
They are the subject of nasty debate, but never get nasty themselves.
Not a one shouts back. Not a one even answers back.
Each just does his or her job — quietly, confidently, bravely.
Their work conditions would make a union boss' head spin. The time away from loved ones would make any normal person's heart spin.
But these aren't normal folks. These are soldiers.
I'm not here to debate the merits of a war, but the merits of the folks fighting it. Far from home, far from a raucous election, far from the heated debate from that election.
We talk — they do. Following a long and stunningly impressive line of soldiers who also did, who also sacrificed, who also died — without a peep, without a complaint, without a stir. This generation, through the generations, the best of all generations.
Sometimes I think there is nothing so loud as dignity so quiet. On this Veterans Day, we'd be wise to remember their sacrifice. We'd be wiser still to remember their example.
I'm not fit to be them, I'm just damn grateful for them.
