Honoring our Veteran Heroes



This Veterans Day, I ask you to pause and reflect to honor those who have worn our nation’s uniform to protect freedom and our American way of life.We are so fortunate to live in a country where our rights are guaranteed and power belongs to the people, rather than to a dictator or monarch. We live in the freest nation on earth, and we owe that to the courageous men and women that answered the call to protect those freedoms; freedoms we often take for granted.

We recognize that without the bravery and sacrifice of our veterans, America as we know it could not exist. Many have paid the ultimate price on foreign soil to assure that our nation remains the torchlight of freedom throughout the world.

November is also a month to give thanks, so if you are a veteran, please know that we are forever grateful for your sacrifice, and I want to personally thank you for your service.

Additionally, if you know someone who has served in the Armed Forces, I encourage you to extend a personal greeting or a home-cooked meal to them to show your appreciation. At the least, I encourage you to join me in thanking them for their service.

We live in the greatest nation on earth and it remains so because of the incredible sacrifices made by our uniformed heroes.

God Bless Each of Them and God Bless America!


  1. I spent the better part of 6 years as an Electrician’s Mate in the late 70s – early 80s, my brother is retired Army (chopper pilot – I always knew he had a screw loose somewhere!), our father served during WWII (our mom was a shipyard welder) & our uncle served in Korea, Japan & 2-3 tours in ‘Nam. I’ve never been very comfortable with people thanking me for my service as the sacrifices I made while on active duty utterly pale in comparison to the sacrifices made by those who preceded me & those who followed. I, too, am most thankful for our freedom. As imperfect as our country may be, none other on this planet can compare…

    In closing, I humbly bow to the “moms & dads” whose service preceded mine, I proudly give a shout out to the “brothers & sisters” who served during my era & offer a prayer for the safety of the “sons & daughters” serving today. God Bless America!
