When I hear stories about veterans I get choked up. When I'm hearing it, I'm caught up in listening. But when the story is over I notice I'm misty eyed or I have goose bumps. Maybe it's not remarkable. But I've only noticed it in recent years. Getting very sentimental in my old age. The most recent time was listening to NBC news tonight and they mentioned the passing of Florence Green, the last known veteran of WWI. BBC News - 'World's last' WWI veteran Florence Green dies aged 110 I've hesitated to mention this because I know I'm such a spectator and can't comprehend the sacrifices veterans have made. But well ... I'm moved.
