When you work at a theme park, you’re in the service industry.
Given today’s date, though, let’s take a look at a different type of service.
Veterans Day is a time to honor the service of all American military veterans.
Our new Maintenance Director, Joe, comes to us following more than a dozen years in the Navy.
He won’t be lonely here.
That’s Joe on the far left. Next, Anthony (Army), John (Army), Matt (Navy), Dale (Army, Navy Seebees), Elmer (Army), Billy (Army) and Paul (Army). In all, their military service totals 68 years.
The Veterans Administration website states the purpose of this holiday simply: A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
We are proud to know each one of these gentlemen and thank them for their service. And, on this eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year, we extend a thank you to all veterans who have served this nation.
