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).

'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.)
REMEMBER THE COST.
If honoring you is all I have to
If remembering is all I have to
You paid that price. You had
my back. Now, I've got yours.
THANK YOU, VETERANS.
