I want to send a special note of sincere thanks to all of our veterans in the venture industry, who I don't think are remembered enough or thanked enough for everything they have done for us. For this group, they're mostly known for their great returns, but most importantly, should be remembered for their service and commitment to our country. Happy Veterans Day to our Venture Veterans.
