A Better Mid-South: Honoring Veterans

A Better Mid-South: Honoring Veterans

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

I know many of you have military veterans in your families.

I have two brothers, one retired Army and one active Air Force. My dad and my husband also served.

I guess that's why this time of year is extra special to so many of us.

During this time, please remember those who sacrificed so much so we can live free and pursue our unalienable rights as U-S citizens.

Instead of allowing Veterans Day to come and go like so many other national holidays -- please take some time to show your appreciation to a veteran.

At the very least, say a prayer for them and their families. Those simple acts will mean more than you know.

If you have a special way to honor our veterans, let me hear from you. Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com, or post on my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.
