Actor Tom Selleck, well-known for his TV acting experience as well as several movies, spoke about his service and his pride in being a veteran on ESPN's First Take.

Selleck, who served as a sergeant in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War era said that he was "proud" to be a veteran and to have that connection. "We're all brothers and sisters," he said, looking back at the military men and women gathered behind him. "Thanks for your service."

He also spoke about the difference between modern acceptance and praise during Veteran's Day and the era that he returned from serving in the military in the 1980s. "We wouldn't have had a show like this in the 1980s," he said. "I think we learned a lesson as a country."

Selleck is right that we've learned a lesson in how important it is to keep our veterans healthy and to show them the love and respect they deserve for their service. But some leaders in this country, specifically President Obama, could take lessons from Selleck in how to show respect.

Obama, who famously ignored salutes from his honor guards and who hasn't had a great track record with the military, needs to realized that their service allows the freedoms that he enjoys, not just as a president, but as an American citizen.
