On this Veteran’s Day, we’re taking a break from telling you about the latest technology news. Today is a day of gratitude. A day to say thank you.

Less than 1% of the population raises their right hand. That select few individuals raise their right hand and swear an oath and enlist in the world’s greatest volunteer fighting forces. An oath to write a blank check worth up to and including their own life for the protection of their fellow Americans. An oath to serve and protect everything we know and love. An oath to fight for our ways, and to fight alongside their fellow Americans that took the same oath.

When you put on the uniform, you become part of something bigger than yourself. You become a part of one of the greatest teams in the world.

Today, please take a moment to say thank you to a Solider, Sailor, Marine, Airman, or Coast Guardsman. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

And, if you’re one of those brave men and women who signed up to fight for this country, you have our collective gratitude.
