In popular culture, we sometimes see young people depicted as being ungrateful to veterans who have served and sacrified for their country. It happens too often in real life, as well, of course. But, I'm pleased that several of my young Facebook friends very solidly demonstrated this Veterans Day that not all of "these kids today" lack the understanding necessary to show gratitude when it is deserved.

Here are some select words from younger friends that came through my newsfeed on veterans day.
