Veterans Day is Sunday, Nov. 11. Most places of businesses, however, will honor the day on Monday, the 12th.
If you would like to honor a veteran in your life, upload a picture of him or her to this story with a description of their branch of military service and any other information you would like to share.
On a personal note, I have posted two pictures. The first is of my grandfather, Lloyd Davis, who I regrettably never knew. He passed away when my mother was fifteen; from what I hear, I would have loved him. He served in the U.S. Army with the Engineers Aviation Battalion during the Korean War.
He went on to become a detective with the Chattanooga Police.
(My other grandfather, Alfred Gamble, was also in the Army, but I don't have a photo of him to upload.)
The second is of a friend, Nicholas Buis, who I went to youth group with in Jacksonville, Florida. We stayed friends the entire time he was in the Army, and he shared his challenges with PTSD and coping with becoming a civilian once again.
He medically retired in 2008.
I would also like to mention the four men I got to know as I reported on homeless veterans in Snellville: Marvin Calhoun, Terence Griffin, David Sanseverino and Franklin Ackerman.
If you don't have a scanner, here's an easy trick: take a picture of the photo with your phone, then email it to yourself.
