Veterans Day is a good time to reflect on the freedoms we have in this country and how important they are to leading truly fulfilled lives of dignity and purpose. Every day around the world, there are those that wish our country harm because of those freedoms and who plot and plan of ways to take them away. Our Vets stand firmly in place against those foes, protecting us in ways we can never fully comprehend and making sacrifices most of us could not endure. For that we thank them all; those past, present and future heroes who ensure our freedoms remain in tact.
Sometimes it’s hard though to know how to express appreciation beyond the “thank you for your service” sentiment. Ashley Fantz of CNN offers some great ways with this article, 5 Ways To Honor Veterans Beyond Veterans Day.
