A young military man just starting out.
He is an United States Veteran, one who made it back from war in one piece- and he is also my brother. (Hi! Shout out! You’re Awesome!) Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who have died while in military service to the United States, so I thought it was fitting to feature a veteran.
If this post was done properly, I’d have information about his twelve-year military career. Like how he spent time in Al Asad, Korean Village, and Haditha, Iraq with the NMCB 24 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom III, or how he completed projects for Special Forces and Security Forces. I’d probably also have a blurry picture of him while deployed- maybe even something about how he (although not vegan) likes my vegan bean salad. But it’s late, so all I will say is Thank You.
Meanwhile, unlike myself, other people had their Memorial Day shit together and posted some vegan recipes to help folks celebrate. Here’s a few from the people who don’t suck…
