When you join the military you sign over (temporarily) your body and your life.
You become dedicated to a cause bigger than yourself. While that is patriotic and noble, this gift has somehow been very downplayed in recent years.
Our government has allowed our servicemen and women to be exposed to things they never should have been exposed to and then pretty well turned their backs on the results down the road.
The mental and physical health of many of our vets are in trouble.
A thank you for your service or happy veterans’ day is a nice wish but try to really realize how much many gave up and continue to sacrifice so you can have what you have in your life.
Freedom isn’t free. It never was and never will be.
“Happy” Veterans Day…
