Veteran's Day 11-11-11

Veteran’s Day

November 11, 2011

Remember, as you go about your day, that today is Veteran's Day.

So thank a veteran today because many have sacrificed and many have given their lives.

But one thing is a constant from all of them:

Their dedication to our great country enables us to enjoy many of the freedoms we often take for granted.

Well said my friend and the least we can do to honor our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedom as you point out, we sometime take for granted. We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude and today is truly their day!

Right you are Craig!  A simple gesture like saying thank you, a pat on the back, or even a handshake/hug wouldn't be amiss with the veterans we come in contact with today.

Always appreciate and thank Veterans and their families for their sacrifices.  No better thing to do than walk the halls of a VA Hospital telling Vets they are appreciated, listen to their stories and make them aware they are not forgotten!

Craig, living in a military community I get the chance daily to thank a veteran.

Thank every Veteran by making sure that living Veterans get the care that they deserve; especially those Vets that have been wounded physically and emotionally. Follow Congress and the laws they are passing that take away funding for Vet centers that care for these Vets... and then make the effort to let your Representatives know  that you support continued funding for Vet facilities/hospitals/homelessness.

There is just so much we take for granted that we owe to our Veterans.  I was happy to see Applebee's Offer a FREE menu to any Vets that had their ID.

Craig, nice tribute.  I propose we don't just thank a veteran or currently serving military person, but that we thank them EVERY time we run across them.

At a Veteran Dedication Service today, I saw firsthand some of the men and women who fought in the war to protect this great country and our freedoms. I didn't realize I was crying until an older man in uniform wiped a tear from my face and when I looked up at him, he was crying too. Wow! What an amazing experience Craig!
