This Veterans Day. How to thank our brave heroes.
A BRAVE LITTLE BOY WHO SAW HEAVEN.
The unknown sacrifice!
This year on Veterans' Day, remember and thank those that defend our Freedoms, and our way of life. The sacrifice that our vets make is too often taken for granted, and forgotten!
What do they sacrifice for us?
Whether or not we Americans are able to fully comprehend what a strong military does for our benefit, we should be able to appreciate what a soldier goes through every day. While in combat, they know that that there is a good chance that either they themselves or the soldier next to them will be "hit" that day! They may watch a friend die, lose a limb, or get captured by an enemy that hates them just for being an American! Because they are a citizen of the greatest country on earth, they are loathed, and wanted dead!
Those not in combat know they may soon be! will they ever see their children, spouses, parents, or even their pets again? They do not know! While we enjoy the latest movie, ballgame, or wii game, they put their life on the line, or suffer in an institution from a war caused affliction. This season, put yourself in the shoes of our brave men and women. Ask yourself if it is too much too right a vet, or thank one, or to take your children to a V.A. hospital this winter an visit some of our best.
Instead of apologizing to other countries for America's past, why don't the politicians apologize to some of our Vets for how they were treated when they came home.
How can we thank our American Soldiers?
There are a few simple ways:
1. Contribute of volunteer at your local American Legion, V.A. Hospital, or similar organization.
2. Stop and thank every Vet. that you see in the public. The current ones are easy to find!
3. Write a letter to the editor!
