Over EZ with Rick

What Did You Do In The War???

Today is the 4500th episode of the Breakfast Club.  4500 time's we've shared coffee and blueberry muffin's to start the day.  And during those almost 18-years we've shared stories.  Lots and lots of stories. 

As you know the Veterans stories are my favorite.  Those who serve their country are forever changed by the experience and I think we owe a tremendous debt to the men and women who gave up their own aspirations for serving in the military.  And what they experienced is something most of us can't imagine.  If you haven't been on the frontlines, you can't know it.

Not all veterans stories are about the frontlines and that doesn't make them less interesting.  Homefront veterans are just as responsible for our freedom for their selfless acts of service.  Rationing, the military draft and other sacrifices meant everyone contributed.  There's a great story about the North Platte Canteen that shows how civilians showed their gratitude to American servicemen by greeting everyone who passed through.  Watch the video and you'll see a wonderful video about the Canteen.

What's your story?  How did you, or someone in your family serve?  I'd love to hear your story and I'm sure many Studio 1430 listeners would as well.  Post your story here for others to read.  We'll keep them up as our own history of service and sacrifice.  At a time when we could all use something to rally around these stories can be a great example of what sacrifice means.  What did you do in the war????
