Our service men and woman protecting US interests and fighting for human freedom across the world are heroes everyday. The phrase "everyday hero" when used to describe our troops is not an oxymoron, it is a blessed truth. Yet, this year, KYK9 searched for 3 missing veterans who suffered brain injuries or PTSD. These heroes were forgotten or ignored until they literally got lost or went missing. What cruel irony. Emergency search efforts should not be the occasion when we remember a veteran's sacrifice. We need to take care of our everyday heroes everyday after they return home from battle. God bless our troops and veterans.
