Tomorrow is Veteran's Day so I'd like to post my deep gratitude to all Veterans, past and present.

"Through the generations, America's men and women in uniform have defeated tyrants, liberated continents, and set a standard of courage and idealism for the entire world. On Veterans Day, our Nation pays tribute to those who have proudly served in our Armed Forces."

"All of America's veterans have placed our Nation's security before their own lives, creating a debt that we can never fully repay. Our veterans represent the best of America, and they deserve the best America can give them"

from A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America 2006

I honor you and I pray for the safety of all our troops

I wanted to share an Email I just received from my son, and my response.
Quote:
Dad and Jeff -

On this Veteran's day, I just wanted to say 'thank you'. Without your willingness to give it all in the name of your country the following pictures, would be just that, pictures, but with your sacrifice as well as that of your brothers in arms they are much more, they stand for Freedom, Justice, and the endearing American spirit. Thank you, irrespective of what the media will try to say your commitment has made this world a better place for my kids. God bless.


And my response.

And thank you also to the families of Veterans. All too often the men and women serving are thanked but the huge sacrifices made by their families are overlooked.

Parents without their children, spouses without their partners and kids without their parents. All of these paople deserve our hearltfelt thank you also!!
