Veterans Day this year has a sense of urgency about it. This nation is at war.
And thousands of miles from Kentucky, in the deserts of Iraq and mountains of Afghanistan, soldiers are dying on our behalf and on behalf of all who support right and good in the world.
The numbers are staggering.
Last month, we mourned the loss of the 100th Kentuckian killed on military duty in Iraq and Afghanistan since those wars began nine years ago.
Furthermore, some 75 soldiers from units stationed at Fort Campbell have been killed since they were deployed in March.
