Happy Veterans Day

US.Flags cross_Memorial.DayHappy Veterans Day!  To our veterans, thanks so much for all you do.

Both you and your families sacrifice so much for our freedoms.  I cannot thank you enough for the amazing gifts you give us.

On this day, let’s remember and thank our veterans.  Because of these brave men and women, we have the freedoms that we can truly enjoy and I hope never take for granted.

The words of God Bless The USA say it so nicely:

I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died who gave that right to me.

I’ll gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.  There ain’t no doubt I love this land. God Bless the USA.
