As the wife of a combat veteran, I would like to say thank you and Happy Veteran's Day to all veterans and active duty military members today. These men and women deserve our utmost respect and gratitude for serving our country in a capacity that most of us never could. They fight for freedom, for equality, for justice, for the right thing. They leave their homes, families, jobs, and lives for Duty, Honor, Country. Some of them make the ultimate sacrifice.
Being married to a veteran has taught me more about courage and sacrifice and selflessness than I ever would have realized on my own. My Hubby Blue came into my life three days after he had already become a veteran, but we went through a lot of ups and downs together to get where we are today. Lots of veterans come home and are misunderstood or unappreciated by our society, and we owe it to them to do everything we can to support them. So thank a veteran today! Let them know that their sacrifice and service was not for nothing and will not be forgotten. God bless veterans.
