Thankful for ... Veterans

Today’s thankful post is easy. Today I want to express my heartfelt thanks to American’s veterans for their dedication and service to our great country. I am thankful for everyone who has served our country in the armed forces. I am proud to count so many people in my life as veterans – both my grandfathers, my dad, my uncles, my father-in-law, and even my friend are all veterans.

Not only have our veterans protected us and our freedom during times of war, they also look after us during times of peace.

While we would prefer that things always be peaceful the reality is often otherwise. During times of war or crisis our veterans were there. It’s not just the human veterans that I am thankful for today, I am also thankful for the countless animals that served our country too. The horses, dogs, mules, homing pigeons, and others served our country with pride and dignity too.

Thank you for your selflessness, thank you for your sacrifices, thank you for your commitment, thank you for your bravery.
