Thank you........

Thank you to all our veterans and current service personnel. Thank you for your willingness to serve this country to keep us enjoying the freedoms of being Americans. Thank your families for their sacrifices while you serve us.
I don't care what your view on war is or conflicts, these brave men and women serve day in and day out so you can enjoy the freedoms that you have. So let's give it up for all our veteran's this day and every day.
If you see a veteran, stop, shake their hand, tell them thank you. Give them a hug. Let them know that you appreciate what they have done or are doing for you.

And always remember, "Freedom is not free. They are out there paying the price".

I will be taking my children to a Veteran's Day parade in just a little while and it will be my privilege to stand and salute and shout thanks to these wonderfully brave soldiers.

How will you pass on the legacy of thanks?
