Honor Our Veterans

Honor Our Veterans

     Have you taken time to thank a veteran? We probably tend to take for granted the sacrifices of our living veterans who served honorably so that we all can be free. Our daughter’s first grade class had a class project to all write a thank you note to a veteran – our 85-year-old neighbor received five of them! Perhaps he is a true Ironman.

     Maybe we can all learn along with the first graders. Veterans Day was originally Armistice day which was to commemorate the end of World War I on November 11, 1918. In 1954, after World War II, it was changed to Veterans Day to honor veterans of all wars. It is a day to honor and thank all of those who have served and sacrificed for our country.

     There are currently about 25 million living veterans in the United States. These are the folks who have supported the law and legal system we have today. Our freedom is what sets us apart from the rest of the world. For most of the history of mankind the rules were determined only by the rich and powerful. Here, because of the freedom our veterans have protected, the law helps and protects all of us.

     So, Veterans Day is certainly a day to be thankful for in our country, for our freedom, and for those who have helped protect it. Please join us today by thanking a veteran and telling them we appreciate their service.

Happy Veterans Day, Thank You (!), and many more to come,

David
