Let's honor our veterans

November 11th is Veterans Day. Let us take the time to honor the men and women who have given freely of their lives to protect us from harm.

We should not forget who gave us our freedom that we enjoy in our country. Freedom is not cheap. Today we have men and women serving in Iraq and Afganistan who are trying to gain freedom from terrorism for the people there. We are hoping to set up free elections for the people. Too many people have died in the violence over there. If peace and stable governments can be established in these two countries, then we have completed our purpose.

Throughout our American history, the members of our armed forces have come to our rescue in time of need. Please take the time and honor these veterans for all that they have done for us.

Also honor the members of the United States Postal Service, many of whom are also veterans, for the service that they have done throughout the years. Celebrate Veterans Day with the veterans in your mind.

This is a day of remembrance to all who have served our country in war and peace.
