JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — April 10, 2021 — When I travel throughout the United States, I find it especially meaningful to see uniformed soldiers in various airports, and always try to go out of my way to approach them and thank them for their service.Usually, they are in transit between bases, or deployment overseas.
