I try to thank veterans for their service whenever I see them, whether it be at a restaurant, in a store or just passing by on the street. Today, ALL Americans should take time to thank a veteran, wherever you see them. Without their unselfish service, none of us would be walking around, enjoying the freedom we do. It is for them I've written and send this tribute...

Thank you for your selfless act,
Of bearing arms and giving back,
For sacrificing all that’s dear,
To live in freedom, without fear,
You fly our colors high and proud,
Your voice of liberty is loud,
Your character is good and true,
There’s honor in the things you do,
So thank you on this Veteran’s Day,
For your safety, we do pray.

Happy Veteran's Day!
