Happy Veterans Day today, once again. Even though it is always officially November 11th, today is the federal holiday.
But two days, or even a week, wouldn’t be enough time to express our appreciation for what these brave men and women do for our nation.
Our veterans exhibit extraordinary strength, courage & sacrifice on a daily basis, and they deserve every last ounce of gratitude that we can offer them, and more.
But something that is occasionally overlooked is the special sacrifice made by the families of our warriors. The spouses and children of military folks live every day with the knowledge their loved ones are volunteering to be in harm’s way…and that they just might not come back.
That is incredible sacrifice, too, and it takes a different kind of strength, of courage, …and of faith.
So today, while you keep our veterans in mind even as you take advantage of the Veteran’s Day sales, or maybe enjoy a day off from work, or even if it’s just business-as-usual for you…remember our Military Families. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers, as well, even as they keep our veterans in theirs.
And pray that each and every member of our armed forces, following their valiant service to our nation, returns safely to the people who miss them.
