For over two hundred years, millions of men and women have proudly donned the uniform and answered our country’s call. Some have served in peace, while others have served—and are still serving in a time of war.
Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, and Coast Guard. We are all proud of you and the sacrifices you have all made to keep our country the land of the free and the home of the brave.
I would also like to take this opportunity to give a special thanks to the families of our brave service men and women. You truly are the unsung heros. While we went off to answer the call of duty, we left our wives, husbands, children, and parents behind.
Just remember: our freedom isn’t free, so say a special prayer today to the ones that made the ultimate sacrifice. If you know a veteran, be sure to shake their hand today and say thanks.
I have set up a special thread today for you to drop in and say how you feel. Happy Veterans Day!
