Thank you to all Veterans, past and present - Handmade By Heroes

Thank you to all Veterans, past and present

November 11, 2015 1 Comment

I grew up a military brat.  When I was 5 years old, my dad was serving a second tour in Vietnam and we were living in Lompoc, California.  He had served 18 years and was now a master sergeant in the United States Air Force.  They offered him a chance to become an officer, and soon thereafter our family was headed to Lackland AFB, San Antonio, Texas.  My father would go on to set the record for longevity in the Air Force, serving for 44 years and 10 months, and retiring as a full colonel.  Lewis Family

We were at the Texas State Fair a few weeks back, when a Vietnam veteran walked into our booth.  Justin struck up a conversation with him and he recounted that he never talked about his service…the memories were painful and he was somewhat ashamed.  Justin told him that he should always be proud of his service and gave him a hug.  He teared up and replied “noboby has ever thanked me for my service”.  It was a very emotional moment from one vet to another. 

After hearing the story, it dawned on me that I never said thank you to my own father.  So, to my father, Colonel Monte R. Lewis, and to the three Vietnam veterans in our HBH family, and to all those who have served this great nation—thank you for your sacrifice.  We honor you this Veteran’s Day.
