Dear Veterans,

11.11.2011

I am thankful for every single veteran that has ever lived. I am thankful for the fights you fought for me and for this country. For the price you paid for OUR freedom. The United States of America is the country it is today because of you.


"On this 11th day of November we celebrate and honor the Veterans and those who have and continue to fight so hard for our country.  Over 40 million men and women have fought and are fighting for our freedoms.  Freedoms that can be so easy to forget we all have.  Freedoms that we have been blessed with in our lives that in return give us the rights and privileges most people throughout the world do not have.  

Today, I want to salute the men and women who have fought so hard for our freedom.  They continue to fight each and every day so we can enjoy the rich blessings this great country provides to each and every one of us.  President Ronald Reagan once said: "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."  This is what the men of women of our armed forces continue to do every waking minute of our lives.  Let us not forget this nor forget the great blessings we all have been blessed with.  Let us honor and thank them today and always."  

The people around me could not have said it better... We are ever so grateful for the things you have done.


Love,
Deidre
