Today is a day that is meant to reflect and thank a veteran for the sacrifices they have made so we as US citizens can enjoy freedom, the rights that we hold so dear and the opportunity to be a great nation.
Through out the years, the wars and conflicts there have always been people that seem to take those rights for granted and those people make this day a bit of a stretch at times. You may not support the conflict/war but at least support the soldiers...they are risking their lives to make sure you have this chance to protest, to scream at them and call them names.
The World War 2 generation was called the Greatest Generation and while they have earned that title..I believe that each generation of Vets is the greatest of their generation.They are great because they go out and defend this country.
I am so very proud of my family and the service they have done...from a grandfather who was in the Marines during the Korean War...to my dad who did several tours in Vietnam...to my brothers and sister who all deployed in the 90's to my wonderful husband, 2 tours in Iraq and 1 tour to Africa..they along with thousands of soldiers risked their lives for freedom..the safety of millions of others. They along with their families are the greatest of their generation.
Thank a Vet not only today but everyday!
