No holiday says “America” the way Veterans Day does. On this day we celebrate not just our freedom, our independence, our democracy, but the sacrifices made to achieve them.
We honor those who fought on our behalf, in our defense, for our freedom. We thank those who sacrificed their time, their health, their lives. We pray for those who now serve at home, overseas, and in harm’s way.
Freedom isn’t free, independence isn’t forever, and democracy isn’t for the faint of heart.
The blessings of America have been brought to us by our veterans. Our thanks, our gratitude, our honor and our blessings to all of them.
