Before modern military tactics were developed, it was common for the General to move to an elevated position to observe the battle.

Have you ever seen something so powerful you just had to share it?

This message is it for me. It is the essence of my life, and speaks to the heart of what we do here at Integrated Financial Group.

Our veterans and soliders are heroes. They have seen and done things that most of us will only read about in our lifetime. Their bravery and sacrifice deserve recognition. This Veteran’s Day, I hope you took a moment to consider all those who have gone before you to make this country free, and if you see a Veteran this weekend, make sure you stop and thank them.

Just like the Candy Bomber says in this video, it’s about attitude, gratitude, and service before self.

Wishing you the best,
