You see, if it weren’t for our veterans, we wouldn’t enjoy many of the freedoms that we have today. When our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence, they began that quest for true freedom. They paid a great price for it.
Our veterans have fought, bled and died, and have kept us a free and sovreign nation. Had those soldiers not fought, we would no longer rule ourselves as a nation. There’s no way of knowing which nation might occupy our land and rule over us had our soldiers not fought. There’s no way of knowing which of our freedoms would be stripped from us.
I personally have never served in the armed forces. Some of you may hold that against me, and that’s ok. Others of you know that I have said that if I was ever drafted that I would go willingly. Regardless, I am truly thankful for those who have served, both voluntarily and those who were drafted.
Tell a veteran thank you today.
