My friend Tom Deierlein posted an update to LinkedIn that reads:
To all my Veteran friends:
When people thank you for your service tomorrow and all days. Don’t say "you’re welcome." Tell them how you really feel:
"It was my honor and a privilege."
Tom was the first interview for this podcast series -- so it you haven't listened yet, go check it out: Persistence and Grit: Tom Deierlein CEO of Thundercat Technology (to date it's the episode with the most downloads).
But his note reminded me of another veteran who has a philosophy that goes like this:
Be a better veteran than you were a Soldier.
That inspired me to produce this short edition and special message.
Thank you for listening. Thank you for your service. And have a Happy Veteran's Day.
We'll be back next week with another regular episode.
