Veterans Day 2021
Today we honor the men and women who have left the land they love to go places they never wanted to be. The Veterans who faced circumstances they never planned for, stood firm when we desperately needed their strength, and overcame the enemies of freedom, for all of us. We honor them because they loved their country, and their fellow citizens, to stand and fight.
We use the term stand and fight, but the fact is from standing to fighting on their bellies in trenches, mounting planes that could be shot down any moment, to fighting under the sea they showed a tenacious patriotism. One that was willing to position them in horrible discomfort, so we could rest easily through the night. One that had nothing to do with politics, or popularity, but with what the founding fathers called the pursuit of happiness.
I’m so thankful for the sacrifices made, and that are continuing to be made by every person in our armed forces. You are one of the main reasons we all believe in the United States of America. Thank you all for following in the footsteps of all those who believe in Liberty’s Light, and who fight to keep it burning bright for us all.
