Today we honor all American veterans — past and present. Those who have served this country during war have done the selfless work of ensuring our liberty and our way of life. For that we owe them our appreciation, not just today, but every day.
In addition to honoring their service with a day of recognition and various ceremonies, we can do so in more personal ways every day of the year. We can personally thank the veterans in our lives. We can send notes and cards to hospitalized veterans and those living in veterans’ homes. And we can work to make sure our government policies show the appreciation of the nation by seeing to the needs of our veterans.
Happy Veterans Day.
