Honoring Those Who Sacrificed For You

Veteran’s Day comes once a year. On this day, we stop to honor those people who served in our military. We have parades and ceremonies with flags and marching bands. Veterans young and old come out and we honor them each and every one. Some are disabled bearing the outward sacrifice. Others carry the scars inside.

It is important on this day that we remember to honor the men and women who served our country. From intense training in boot camp to serving on the front lines, each veteran sacrificed every day of their service. Some continue to sacrifice for the rest of their lives.

These veterans exemplified John F. Kennedy’s quote,

“Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”

President Kennedy not only spoke these words, he lived them, as he was a veteran.

Our veterans of past and future are not only veterans on November 11. They are veterans on November 12 and every day of the year. Remember to honor them tomorrow and each day. They deserve it and we owe it.
