So far today, I've had the pleasure of attending two Veterans Day programs. I've shaken the hands of close to a dozen vets and thanked them. I urge everyone to take some time and think about the incredible sacrifice these brave men and women make so we can speak freely in the forum that is social media.

Thank you to all those who are serving, have ever served or will serve in the future. You are the very best representation of the American will.

Enjoy the trip and bring home some stories!

If you must travel, please do so safely. If you're stating where you are until the storm passes, plan to be in an interior room or basement.
