“The Willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country, has earned them our lasting gratitude” ~ Jeff Miller

Veterans Day is a day of parades, flying flags, and ceremonies that take place to honor those who do what most of us can’t. Those who experience life in a way that most of the general public could never imagine, and to honor and remember those that never got to come home.

Veterans Day is a day of thanks. It is a thank you to those who don’t receive it enough. It is a thank you to those who serve today, those who served yesterday, and those who are no longer with us.

“On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free” ~ Dan Lipinski

Originally this day was created to celebrate the ending of World War I. It was a day of celebration of peace. In 1954 that day changed to Veterans Day to celebrate all of those who have served in the Armed Forces for our nation

These brave men and women go when they are called with no qualms or questions and sacrifice for the common good.

This day isn’t about being a Democrat or a Republican. It isn’t about agreeing on going to war or not going to war. It isn’t about the decisions that have been made for this country. It is to honor those who go above and beyond to serve. Those who selflessly put the life of a stranger before their own, and don’t think twice about it. Today is about their courage.

So today, don’t hesitate to say thank you.

Look to all military branches: Navy, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps and take the time to appreciate all that they do.

“The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment.” ~Judd Greg

Honor all those who served.
