As a war and an Army veteran, today I pay homage to the men and women who have served and who continue to serve this great nation of ours because we sometimes forget that freedom isn't free. THANK YOU.
It occurs to me that many no longer remember the history of Veterans Day so I thought I would include this brief overview….
In 1918, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in the eleventh month, the world rejoiced and celebrated. After four years of bitter war, an armistice was signed. The "war to end all wars" was over.
November 11, 1919 was set aside as Armistice Day in the United States, to remember the sacrifices that men and women made during World War I in order to ensure a lasting peace. On Armistice Day, soldiers who survived the war marched in a parade through their home towns. Politicians and veteran officers gave speeches and held ceremonies of thanks for the peace they had won.

We are blessed to live in a country where anything is possible and with focus, guidance and determination, we truly can achieve anything we choose.
You were born to be great.
YES, you can!
