"A veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life."
How can we thank you enough for all that you have given for our country? Does one day of remembrance each year do justice to the countless sacrifices you have made? Even if it sometimes seems that we have forgotten, we have not forgotten. It is because of you that we have so many of the freedoms that we enjoy today. Thank you for your selflessness in service to others.
Thank you especially to Grandpa Moorse, for your service in the Korean war! You are the one I think of first on this day each year. I hope that someday soon you can sit down with my boys and tell them of your experiences, so they will understand what brave men and women are willing to do for their country, their children, and future generations.
God bless all of those who have served, who are serving, and who will serve in the armed forces!
