Veterans Day

Once a year we set aside time to observe the bravery, sacrifice and commitment of the countless individuals who have served in the nation's armed forces. For generations these souls have labored, in times of peace and times of conflict, to guard us both abroad and at home and to right that which was wrong. They have risked their freedom and their lives so that we may have these things we hold sacred for ourselves and our fellows. May their sacrifices never be forgotten and may the countries they worked to build and protect never be turned astray.

We are thankful to those who have served and given so much. To the men and women currently in harm's way: you have our gratitude, our prayers and our wishes that you may be returned safely and quickly to those who await you at home.

Thank you, grampa. Thank you, dad.

Of holy war and holy need
