Happy Veteran's Day... What?




Veteran's Day.                                                           Soldiers Tribute to the Troops- Coming Home
November 11th.                                                                    

The day to remember those who have fought so that the rest of us could go shopping?

Alrighty Then.... time to set the record straight!                                                                                
That is not what they gave their all for...
But sometimes that's exactly what it feels like.

Does no one care that to reduce Veteran's Day and Memorial Day and even September 11th to BIG SALE DAYS is to reduce the importance of what those who are to be honored really did?

So...
For all those Veterans that are currently living ...
WoundedWarriorProject.org -- Beautiful- Eminem
Those with families who await word from them while they are deployed...
Those who are working right along side the rest of us and never even tell us that they are Veterans...
Those who are homeless and only want someone to care enough to give them shelter...
Those who are injured and fighting harder to become the men and women they were before than they ever did on a battle field... whether those injuries are visible or not...

Those from WWI and II and Korea and Viet Nam and Concorde and Gettysburg and Mogadishu and Tikrit and all those places we simple Americans do not even know about....
This post is for them all...
The living and the dead.

The sentiments are completely and honestly how I feel...

Enjoy them... Cry, laugh, be outraged, be compassionate...

But most of all remember that without all of these BRAVE and SELFLESS people from the beginning of America until NOW...
Without them there would be no America ...
Or at least not an America worth fighting for.
