I am a veteran. My family has a long history of serving in the Miltary, as far back at the Revolutionary War, 1776 and before. Veteran's Day if for military vets, not any other public service. Thank Our Vets ... hand shake, buy a meal, treat them with respect. A friend of mine posted this and I feel it says a lot. We have so many freedoms that many take for granted. Don't do that, FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.
To the men and women of the United States armed forces, past and present:
My family and I live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin because we choose to. My children go the school that my wife and I have chosen. We can go anywhere we like, whenever we want, as often as we like. My job is one that I chose, having dreamed about since I was a child. I went to the college of my choice and studied the subject matter of my own choosing. I have the right to say whatever is on my mind whenever I feel the need. No one tells me what religion I must practice, what person or institution I must show allegiance to, or how to live my life. I have more rights of freedom than any other citizen of any country on Earth. All of this is because of your service to our country. On this Veterans Day, I THANK YOU for your service, your dedication, and your selflessness.
Thank You to all our Veterans, all services, all jobs you do and have done.
