To me, Veterans Day is a day of reflection and remembrance for all the sacrifices the men and women of the Armed Forces have made on our behalf throughout the years.
I thank my husband for his service. I remember my friend, John, for his service. I pause and think about ‘what if’ my two uncles hadn’t died in WWII.
So many people have given their lives in the name of freedom. So many families have suffered a loss that can never be forgotten. Lives changed forever. Families changed forever.
Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough because it isn’t. Living just nine miles from the Pease Air National Guard Base which is home to the New Hampshire Air National Guard’s 157th Air Refueling Wing, I will keep thanking those service men and women that I run into.
I sincerely appreciate their service to our Country and their families’ sacrifice on our behalf.
Freedom is never free, and I wish we could all experience peace on this Veterans Day 2015.
