EVERY day should be Veteran's Day. Not just on certain days or when convenient ... THANK YOU to all who serve(d) and sacrifice(d).

Image 2011, Karla Dorman

'Thank you' is not enough to
repay service and sacrifice,
but it's all I have.

Because of you, I am free.

Free to live, love, choose my

Free to be anything.  Do

They say nothing in life is free.

That freedom comes at a 
terrible price, one paid not
only by the warrior, but by
their family, as well.

(All gave some.
                         Some gave all.)



If honoring you is all I have to
do ...

If remembering is all I have to
do ...

You paid that price.  You had
my back.  Now, I've got yours.
