Thank a veteran: America is the”Home of the FREE, because of the BRAVE.”

Where would we be without our military and war veterans? How many of us take it for granted? Too many, I believe. If it wasn’t for men and women putting their lives at stake would we have freedom of speech; would we be able to walk around this nation without armed guards walking the streets; would we have the right to choose our religion…?
Any day, but especially November 11, thank a veteran. My dad was a Korean War veteran, my uncles served in the United States Navy; all served during war and non-war periods. It doesn’t matter when people serve or served; I’ll admit I couldn’t do it, but I thank God there are people who have the courage to keep us safe and free. #ThankAVeteran
Until next time,
