Today is Veterans Day and we join in celebrating each and every one of you that have served this country. We are all free to go to our jobs and businesses today because of the sacrifices made by Veterans and their families. The American military is our defender of freedom here in the US and around the world. It's not just a collection of Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force branches, it's made up of the people that serve.
Whether you were drafted many years ago or you volunteered, it was not an easy decision. Sacrifices were made not only by the one serving but from his or her family as well. We would not be the country we are today without those people and those sacrifices.
That is why in offices around the country today we should set aside time today to honor them.
For those who have served, thank you and enjoy your day with your families.
