Thank You, Veterans

Source
Thank you to all the brave men and women who have served our country, laying down their lives in duty to their friends and countrymen. Because of the sacrifices of you and your families, we enjoy so many freedoms. Freedom is not "free". There is a cost. Thank you for paying for it with your time, and for some, with your very lives. We are so grateful.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with your wherever you go."
Joshua 1:9

For some of you, you are still on the battlefield,"duking it out" with our enemies, or perhaps you have a loved one serving afar. I pray for safety and grace to make it through another day. I pray you feel the presence of your Heavenly Father. May you be encouraged by this scripture and know that He is with you always and your sacrifice has not gone unnoticed. 

Thank you, Veterans! Thank you, Dad, for serving in the Navy all those years ago and for modeling a thankful attitude toward men and women in Armed Forces uniforms for your grandchildren.

  1. My late dad served as a US military as a medical staff/nurse during his young days. Until his last breath, he was still a very brave and active in the organisation.

    Happy Veterans Day.

    Happy Tuesday.

  3. As we remember our veterans, let us also remember our active troops who will one day be veterans, too.
