We owe a lot to our veterans, and their service is appreciated.
I make a point to thank any soldier I meet for protecting my freedom. Because of the brave men and women that volunteer to serve in our military, I live in the only time in history that the country can be at war, while I stay at home and get married. I can start a family and go about my day enjoying my freedom, while these people fight for me. I am only free because they have the courage to volunteer for a job that I would otherwise be forced to take. I don't take that for granted, and I hope I'm not alone in thanking these heros for doing what they do.
This weekend, I hope you can all go out of your way to thank a soldier or a veteran soldier for your freedom. And if you are a soldier or a veteran soldier, I hope that you can take pride in knowing that you are personally responsible for the fact that we live in a still free country.
