National Lady Vet Day

Today is a day set aside to honor female veterans. Take a minute out of your day to honor these women who have served, often in the same capacities as their male counterparts.

It's also National Chocolate Mint Day. Cocoa beans, which were quite bitter, were brought back to Europe from the Mayans and at first used medicinally. Chefs, being what they are, experimented with flavors like cinnamon and mint and, voila'. The thin mint cocolate wafer is still the most popular girl scout cookie.

    I was married to 2 "lady" vets, I am a retired vet myself. Also as a former Paramedic I have done no mask, no gloves CPR on street people. I would however have to think twice about starting CPR on either of them. World might just be a better place. That said I also served with some women that I had no problem trusting with my life.

    Wow just realized this was about the armed services after sharing with my girl cousin who is a Veterinarian in northern VA and attended UGA.

    I was a little surprised that more folks didn't comment on our female armed force personnel. Then I realized what you said - I should have been more descriptive in the title.
