Today is the day we should be thanking those individuals who served as soldiers, some of whom gave all, for our freedom.
Some have made the military their career.
Some have served in the military for education purposes.
Some have served because it was their belief that it was their duty to give back in this manner, to acknowledge those who gave them the ability to live in the land of the free.
To all those who serve, or have served, we owe them a debt of gratitude for what this nation stands for....freedom.
Although we should be thanking them every day, I ask you to acknowledge them today.
When you see a veteran, please thank them for their service.
Some of those who have served have given the ultimate sacrifice, they did not make it home alive.
We can no longer say thank you to them, but their families are left to continue on. We can be there for them.
I have shared this before, but I do believe it should be shared every year. Those that serve are not forgotten when they give the ultimate sacrifice defending us. Those that have answered the call of freedom but have fallen before returning home, are honored for responding to that call with the Angel Flight.
