Take a moment and Thank a Vet


Today is Veterans Day, a day to give thanks to all the military soldiers who have given their lives and their time to insure our safety and our freedoms. There were 21.9 million Veterans in 2009 according to the 2009 American Community survey. They are our brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, fathers and mothers, and even grandparents. They are your neighbors, old school mates, and friends you have met along the way. Take a moment today to thank a Vet. Shake their hand, and a moment to bow your head and give thanks to those vets that have lost their lives in order to protect yours. Thank you to all the Vets out there today and everyday.
