Having served almost 39 years in the Navy (active and reserve), I want to thank all the companies, restaurants, businesses and enterprises that offer free services to all of our veterans on Veterans Day.

What a wonderful way to support our country and those who protected it on their day. As we say in the Navy, Bravo Zulu (job well done).

God bless America and our veterans.

Rear Adm. James R. Fowler, MC, USN (ret.), Millcreek
