Each year I thank our veterans. They are the men and women who said yes to serving our country. They do brave and dangerous work daily. Thank you, veterans, for all you do.
There are lots of ways to say thank you to our veterans. Attending a ceremony at nearby cemeteries is so patriotic. Thanking a veteran for his/her service shows gratefulness. Flying the American flag on this patriotic day is inspiring.
I say a special thank you to my own special veteran, Jack. His branch of service was a part of our lives even before we married. He was deployed many times and he did dangerous things in far away places while serving our country. Every year, I get a little tongue-tied finding a way to honor his service. He tells me that I honor his service by supporting him in every way. I kept those home fires burning during each deployment and his homecoming was always, oh, so sweet.
