They were young at the beginning of their adult lives, they were old merely looking back across the pages of their lives and many were in between; they were those military men and women who have passed on from this life to the next one. Today, we celebrate these lives what they have given for the greater good and what they represent…our freedom. Take a moment to say a prayer for a veteran who has passed on or those who are left behind with the scars of battles. Take a moment to say thank you the next time you see a military man or woman and give them your respect. That’s not much to ask for considering they will lay down their life for you and your freedom.
I want to personally thank every military person, living or deceased for their contribution to my life and the lives of all Americans. If it were not for your dedication we would not know life as we know it today.
