I just learned about this… Got Your Six.
In the military when someone tells you that they’ve “Got Your 6,” it means they’re watching your back.
This post is about 2 things:
1) Who’s back do you have and who’s got your back?
2) What are you doing to help our Veterans who are returning from service?
Regarding #1 – I think it’s my job to care for every person I meet. By ‘care for’ I mean see them. Look in their eyes, smile and listen. As for who has my back… there are so many people who have watched over me; I am blessed. I am sending out a loving thank you to each of you today.
Regarding #2 – Our Veterans are coming back from service– they need our support. The “all-volunteer” group of servicemen and women face significant issues resulting from multiple tours of duty and injury — to the body and to the spirit. We can all do something. We just need to find it. They need support in– jobs, education, health, housing, family and leadership.
We need to take the skill and experience of those who have served and let them show us the way — while we stand by them and stand up for them. It is our duty and privilege.
