A Veteran’s Day Thought

A VETERAN’S DAY THOUGHT

A VETERAN'S DAY THOUGHT
Over the course of history men and women of various backgrounds have stood up and answered the call to don the uniform of military service and place themselves in harms way for the protection and promotion of the causes of liberty and freedom.  Most have completed their courses unscathed, but many have left the service with life-long injuries, physical and emotional wounds they will carry the rest of their lives.  Others have not returned, paying the ultimate price for the country and citizens they serve.  Thank you Veterans, for being willing to serve, to go, and to pay the price.  

Now, I challenge the rest of you, myself included, to live a life and be the type of person that strives to be worthy of such devotion and sacrifice.  Do not let their sacrifice be in vain.  Honor them by living honorably.
