On Veterans Day

To those men and women who put their lives on the line so that we may sleep easily in our beds, secure that the American way of life will remain strong, I say thank you. Thank you for being the front line protectors of our liberty, and for what you do so that others, too, may experience relief from despotism and oppression.

For those who came home after serving, thanks go to God for watching over them and returning them back to their loved ones. For those who gave their lives as the ultimate sacrifice for others, no words can say how much what they did resonates with us.

It would be altogether fitting and proper to take a moment and "salute" our veterans in recognition that we can take that moment freely and with no coercion because they did what was needed.
