Veterans Day 2022 #VeteransDay

(A reprint of a previous post.)

Ted Albers, all dressed up and ready to go serve his country.


To honor my many family members who have served in the military …

To honor my dear surrogate grandfather, Ted Albers (RIP), who was drafted into the Army at the age of 34, captured at the Battle of the Bulge, and held as a POW under the end of WWII …

To honor my husband, a Vietnam-era Navy veteran who flew in P3s looking for Russian submarines …

To honor them, I’ve made a donation to The New York Bar Foundation’s fundraiser to assist veterans in need of legal services (https://nylawyerslovevets.swell.gives/).

Don’t just thank a veteran for his or her service. Hug them. Hold them close and tell them you love them. Support them. Make sure what they fought for is not denied to them.

  1. Yes, we most always honor the service of our military. My dad was a paratrooper in WWII – he suffered back injuries and what we now call PTSD for the rest of his life, but never complained, and never talked about his service. Your donation is noteworthy and well done.
