What does Veterans Day mean to you?
Consider these words, from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' website:
"Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor ALL those who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served - not only those who died - have sacrificed and done their duty."
I am grateful for those who serve. How about you? Without their sacrifices we would not enjoy the freedom to live as we do. To all veterans, including my Dad, who served in the Air Force, thank you!
Do you have any veterans among family or friends?
I invite you stop back on Thursday for a special post that will be a part of my publisher's Blogtastic weekend event.
