Happy Veterans Day! While in-person visits to the VA hospital may be restricted this year, you can still thank a veteran with a phone call, letter, or email. And if you know a veteran personally, today is a great day to ask them about their service, Military.com says. Ask what they did while in the service, how long they served, and what their favorite memories were from that time. If the veteran you know saw combat, however, be aware that some questions may bring back bad memories — be supportive, not intrusive.
