The rights and freedoms we enjoy today are directly attributable to the sacrifices of our veterans. Each time I say the simple words of the Pledge of Allegiance, or I gaze upon the beauty of our flag, I reflect on the sacrifices made by so many of our men and women who wear or have worn the uniform of the United States of America. Veterans Day is a time to express our appreciation to those who have given so much and have asked for so little in return. May God bless our veterans and our troops that are still in harms way.
