Veterans Day is a day to remember, thank, and show appreciation for those who have served this great nation in our armed forces.
Starting at the conclusion of WWI; all the way through today.
We thank those who came before us.
We remember and honor those who have fallen.
We cherish those who are still in our lives.
We hold them close while they are home.
We wait, patiently, for their return when they are gone.
we cherish them all.
We support them,
