Freedom’s never free

It’s one day a year but it should be every day.That one day a year is today – Veterans Day. The day set aside to remember our military veterans. A day to say thanks and give them their due for where we are today.The military history of the United States is both glorious and tragic, but it’s at the heart of our freedom.Men and women have served and they have died in their service. Those who have served and sacrificed should never be forgotten. The debt that this country owes our military veterans for their service and their continued service is mammoth.Setting aside one day for them is a a minuscule way of saying thanks.Recently, the last surviving World War I veteran passed away. And now, the numbers of World War II and Korean War veterans are diminishing every day. With each Veterans Day that passes, there are thousands of veterans who die.That’s what makes each Veterans Day so important. The chance to say thanks and recognize our military veterans.Don’t ever think it’s trite to pass along a thank-you to a military veteran. The role our military has played in our history can never be underestimated or understated.On this Veterans Day, remember our veterans. They’ve earned our thanks and our respect.Freedom is never free and our gratitude will never vanish.
