November 14 was a very special day at Rotary where we celebrated Veterans Day and the Veterans in our Rotary Club!  Our speaker was Commander (Ret) Jack James, a former SEAL and Explosive Ordnance expert.  He reminded us that Veterans Day is a celebration of triumph over adversity, of men and women who at one time “signed a blank check, up to and including the ultimate sacrifice” when they entered service to their country.
