These freedoms are under attack from many directions these days. Al Queda, ISIS, and extremists of all sorts want to destroy the America that we love so dearly. Stepping up to combat these groups are the service men and women of the United States.
Love of country, a sense of duty and self-sacrifice are just some of the qualities exhibited routinely by the dedicated men and women who serve our country both at home and abroad.
The United States of America would not exist without them.
When you encounter a current or ex member of the military service this Veterans Day, say thanks. We owe them so much more than that, but we at least owe them that.
