Hats Cheer Up War Veterans

JB Stetson Wool Plaid Ballcap - The HazelhurstWith Veterans Day coming up on November 11, I thought this story about a hospice volunteer by the name of John Schorr very moving.

You see, Mr. Schorr believes there’s a hat for everyone, especially veterans. A Vietnam vet himself, John Schorr has been volunteering at the hospice for three years, and hands out baseball caps (like the one he wears) to other war vets — on which the war and years of service of that patient are detailed.

All of the veterans he’s come across served in WWII (not Vietnam), but the very fact that the patient and volunteer served in the US forces during wartime gives them a special bond. That shared experience, embodied by the hat, provides the basis for conversations, mutual respect and friendship.

By honoring war veterans, Mr. Schorr himself is an honorable man. Thank you sir.

And thanks for reading too.
