Day 5 – Saluting Our Veterans

23 Jun

Today was a quick trip up to El Paso County, where several military bases remind us of those men and women who defend and have defended our country.  Walking into most any business, in any part of town, one sees those troops who are active duty in their uniforms, we are also surrounded by veterans, and still others lay resting – those who have paid the ultimate price for freedom.

As a former military wife, and someone who has seen and felt the effects of our current wars, I always thank the men and women who have given their lives to this endeavor.  We are incredibly blessed to live in a free country (even at times when it seems quite un-free), and our gratitude towards our troops and veterans should be a part of our lives in one way or another.

So, the next time you see someone in uniform, or someone who is a veteran – thank them, shake their hand, and let them know that you care.  It can make all the difference in the world.
