We say Happy Veterns Day. I have conditioned myself not to say Happy Veterns Day.

We say Happy Veterns Day.  I have conditioned myself Not to say Happy Veterns Day.

My Son once said, what is so happy about it?  I have lost good friends in Afghanistan & Iraq.  It is not a Happy Hoilday.  He then went on to share more about remembering, but that it is not a Happy Day.  So to Our Veterns who have lost loved Ones and Good friends that they bonded with and experienced & suffered through war times.

Thank You that you endured through those hardships & even suffered on our behalf, that we may call this the Land of the Free.

And here is a nice quote or two or three ; 0 )

Remembering Veterans on Veterns Day.  Again, Thank You to all our hard working veterans.  We appreciate the service you are or have been committed to, so that the rest of us may enjoy our freedom.
