If so, thank the next person you meet who was or is in the military.
Today is Veteran’s Day. We gratefully recognize all who have served or are serving in the armed forces. Someone posted this on Facebook which I feel truly captures my feelings as well:
I wrote the following as a feeble attempt to honor all who serve:
They march and they sail, and they fly
While we sleep, they guard land, sea, and sky
From their homes they are taken
To lands God forsaken
To answer the next battle cry.
Their lives are oft times uprooted
And our praise is too often muted
Every year in November
On this day we remember
Their valor is never disputed!
So, off goes my hat to the vet
They always give more than they get
Let’s give them three cheers
For serving those years
We’ll forever be in their debt.
