We honor those that are still with us by respecting their distinct acts of selflessness that put them in harms way, in order to protect our freedoms and way of life. They are our heroes of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. They include “All” Veterans of “Every” war fought by our soldiers. The families of our Vets deserve our gratitude as well, for their hardships are far greater than the average family.
Lets not forget our neighbors to the north. Remembrance Day in Canada is the same day as Veterans Day. As Allies, their soldiers deserve the same respect & honor.
As we remember those that are no longer with us, we should pause to embrace their memories…. And maybe even share their stories, So that they may never be forgotten.
So on 11/11/12 thank a Veteran. I know I will
