Have YOU thanked a soldier today???

On Veterans Day, we should be celebrating each and every soldier, from past to present, here and long gone, for the freedoms that we are able to enjoy each day.  My 8 year old looked at all the red ribbons hung up in his school hallway, proud that one of them has his grandpa’s name on it…

We went out for lunch one day last week when school was closed.  3 soldiers walked in.  As I called the server over and asked for their bill, my son asked what I was doing.  I explained to him that they can never be thanked enough for the way they serve their country.  I explained to him that we need to recognize them for what they do, and if NOTHING else, you say, “Thank you for your service.”  As we met them when they finished lunch, he thanked each one of them.

I couldn’t have been more proud when my husband had seen an older veteran later that week wearing his hat and pins.  As my husband approached him to thank him, so did my son…

To all our soldiers,

THANK YOU!

Not just today, EVERY DAY.
