This Veterans’ Day, let’s take a minute to show our gratitude for all of the brave men and women who have fought and are fighting for our country.
War is very much used as a talking point by politicians and talking heads these days. And while we, as Americans, do have to find a way to resolve two wars that we are currently trapped in, I’d like to put those issues aside today to offer thanks to those who offer their lives in the name of OUR freedom.
Let’s hope that President Obama uses today to reflect on making the correct choice in dealing with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He didn’t get us into them, but let’s hope he can find the best way of getting us out of them.
ALSO: In case you were wondering, the American war I find most interesting is the Revolutionary War. It got this country started, afterall.
