WHAT WE MEAN
When we say soldiers, we mentally include men and women. When we say brothers we mean brothers and sisters and when we say sons, we mean sons and daughters. Last week Ron and I attended the local DAV annual Christmas party. We were seated at the table with two very nice couples. I asked the women if they were members of the auxiliary and they informed me that THEY were the veterans. Female vets usually don't attend reunions or other organization activities so this was nice to see they are getting comfortable receiving recognition for their service.
