God Bless Our Veterans

This post need not be long; words alone cannot express my gratitude to the millions who have given up their lives to defend freedom.

Through hundreds of years, scores of wars, famous battles and those little-known, valiant men and women have fought; as units, battalions, regiments, and individuals, they have faced the enemy. Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, al-Qaeda: our troops have stood up to all of them in the pursuit of Liberty.

On this day, forget about barbecues and burgers; meat can’t hold a candle to lives of sacrifice. May God bless our military and those who have served; may He also bless the fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, wives, and husbands who have lost those they love.

Let us never forget that real American heroes don’t wear tights and bright colors; they wear a uniform.
