Veteran’s Day 2013

This is a day to celebrate the service of all veterans. While Memorial Day is a time of remembrance for those lost while serving, today is about celebrating those who have served, dn those currently dedicating their lives to our freedom and safety.  It is okay to wish people a Happy Veteran’s Day because this is a day to salute the men and women of the armed forces.

I am in awe of those who serve and am grateful for not only their sacrifices, but those of their families.  When someone makes the choice to be a soldier they take their entire family on the journey with them, and I thank every soldier and every military family for all that they do. Every single person who works in the military, and for the military, is a hero.

If you see a soldier today, thank them. If you are a soldier, I thank you. We are blessed to live in America and that blessing comes to us on the shoulders of millions of men and women who make sacrifices on our behalf. I hope you enjoy this day because it is for you. I pray you are safe and know that it is because of you that I am free to keep the faith.
