Veterans Day is a day to honor all who have served this great country of ours, and Americans should take pause to honor our brave men and women.
As a member of the American Legion, I would like to impress upon the many to remember all those who gave their lives and the many veterans who today suffer with both the visible and invisible scars of war.
These veterans have served our country with pride and devotion to duty so that we might have the freedoms we enjoy today.
Those who have served did so at great personal sacrifice, leaving family, friends and jobs behind to serve the greater good.
