When you hear the word veteran, what is your first impression?
Veteran is an all-encompassing word.
As you approach the celebration of Veteran's Day, take time to inquire, research, discuss what it truly means to be a veteran, especially in terms of those who not only laid the foundation and established the platform for our American freedom but also those who sacrificed to maintain that freedom. Know what this day will truly celebrate and be a knowledgeable part of the celebration.
"A grave price is being paid every moment of every day of the year for all the freedom America has to offer. Let us not forget those who have fought or are fighting for our nation; they are the epitome of the human spirit called freedom!"
~Sharla Lee Shults, Awakenings from Then 'til Now
Greet every soldier with a smile, a handshake, and a thank you for serving the USA!
