On the eleventh day of November each year, we commemorate Veteran’s Day. This is a day to celebrate all who answered the call to serve our great country, whether those members are still serving, have completed their term(s) of service, or have retired. On this day we say thank you to those who have offered to lay down their lives in service of our nation, it’s people and it’s tenets. Veterans made the conscious decision to leave behind the lives they knew in pursuit of something greater than themselves. They sacrificed a “normal” life spent with families at holidays, never missing a birthday or a birth. They chose to sleep on the ground, write their will and testament at the age of 19, and be placed in harms way. They CHOSE that life instead of continually being present for their kids on the bad days, as well as the good. This is an exceptional day because we may honor those individuals, though we may never be able to offer a “thanks” we feel to be adequate, we can observe this day in admiration of their sacrifice and be thankful that they have been, and will always be there.
