Remembering those who walked onto foreign soil to secure our freedom
However, for others, this day has a tremendous amount of meaning. It is a day to remember and honor those who have served their country proudly, those who are currently serving, and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice while doing so.
Itís a day to stop and thank a veteran for their courage and their pay your respects the fallen heroes who never made it home to tell their own stories of war.
Some of us do not have an immediately family member who died while fighting, but many of us know someone who has lost a family member, a friend, or a brother in arms.
Pay tribute to those men and women on this day.
Head to the nearest cemetery and or monument and take park in a ceremony. Listen to what those who are leading those ceremonies have to say, too often, those powerful words that our local leaders and veterans are speaking arenít really heard.
Show respect to those veterans you pass by everyday and donít necessarily make time to thank for their services.
We often take for granted the freedom we have been provided and donít always remember to attribute credit to those honorable men and women who have made these things possible for us.
Their strength and courage to stand on foreign soil and defend our country with honor and pride, has been provided to us without expectations of notability or attributions - we owe it to them to show our appreciation.
To those men and women who have served and are currently serving in the United States Military, thank you for your selflessness and thank you for your service.
