Keep veterans in your thoughts this week

By Staff | Nov 6, 2009

A hero can be defined as a person admired for their courage, nobility or bold deeds.

This week we honor such individuals. This Wedneday, Nov. 11 is Veterans Day.

It’s a day reserved to show our appreciation for those military veterans who fought on the battlefields of Europe; or by sea in the Pacific Ocean; or along the 39th parallel in Korea; or in the jungles of Vietnam; the sandy soil of Iraq; the rocky terrain of Afghanistan; or many other places.

They fought to preserve our freedoms and way of life and to better the lives of countless others around the world.

Below is a poem which effectively illustrates their love of country and many sacrifices to serve this great nation.

We should always be thankful.
