Thank You Veterans!

Today is Veterans Day; a national holiday created to thank all those who served our country, fought our wars, and defended freedom at home and across the globe.

Being a member of the armed forces is no easy job. It’s dangerous, it’s thankless, and oftentimes keeps you away from your families. That said, it is usually a personally rewarding venture, knowing you are doing your part to keep America the greatest nation on Earth.

Granted, there are times when America doesn’t seem as great; we’re irrevocably divided, many of our politicians are corrupt, and some of our citizens denigrate our soldiers, but we’re still that shining beacon on the hill, always ready to welcome you home.

Thank you all for your service, your honor, and your continued commitment to the United States.

  1. Quick reminder…From Patriot Post:
    Amid all the political rancor that dominates the public discourse and news cycles, we should remind others of the following observation from Army veteran Charles M. Province:
    It is the Soldier, not the minister, who has given us freedom of religion.
    It is the Soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
    It is the Soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
    It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to protest.
    It is the Soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
    It is the Soldier, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.
    It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
    Who serves beneath the flag,
    And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
    Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
    At one point in their lives, all veterans have written a blank check made payable to “The People of the United States of America” for an amount up to and including their lives.
