To me it allows a day of reflection on the sacrifice that our armed forces volunteers and their families have made over the years on our behalf.
It is like Thanksgiving Day for Veterans.
So, to my husband, uncles, brothers-in-law, and my friends, I say thank you. To you and your loved ones and friends who have sacrificed on our behalf, I say thank you.
Thank you for volunteering to protect us and keep us safe. Whether your service resulted in being called the greatest generation, you were ignored when you returned, or a parade was held, your service is respected and honored by those of us who sat safely at home.
Some of you who sacrificed are gone, but none of you are forgotten. 🇺🇸
