Remember and salute our veterans today

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

They have fought to preserve our freedoms. Without them, this would be a very different country right now, or perhaps we wouldn't even have a country by now.

Today is the day we should all pay our veterans proper respect
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have taught Americans much-needed lessons in the valor and willingness to sacrifice of the 2.3 million men and women who have donned uniforms on active duty or in the reserves.

It has dawned that all have volunteered in service for the rest of us at home, risking health and life and often losing one or the other. It has dawned that we would be nowhere without them.
If there is a veterans parade in your area today, attend it and show your respect for these fine individuals, many of whom have sacrificed so much to keep us free.

Hopefully, on this Veterans Day we Americans will realize that that is much more that holds us together than what keeps us apart. Whether we are conservative, moderate or liberal, or Republican or Democrat, we should all join in this celebration of our veterans.
