Happy Vetarans Day

Lead an important conversation today.  Here are some suggestions.

  • Thank a Veteran.
  • Remember the Veterans who are not here to thank.
  • Tell a family of a Veteran how much you appreciate their family member's service and sacrifice.
  • Explain to a child the meaning of the statement "Freedom is not Free" and how Veterans pay the price for us all.
  • Join an organization that supports Veteran's affairs.

To the Veterans reading today - Happy Veterans Day.  To those readers who have lost a Veteran in your life - your loss is our loss.  My thoughts and prayers are with you today as well.

Let's make sure Veterans feel appreciated for more than a day.

Arlington at Christmas

Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...
