We Americans should all celebrate the beauty of our land, the freedom we all enjoy and hope of peace for all people. On each and every Veterans Day we should count our blessings and thank all the proud veterans who have served this great country. Today, as we continue the war on terrorism, we should give thanks and pray for the outstanding men and women who are protecting us with service in foreign and domestic lands.
As we thank our past veteran's and those now serving to protect our freedom, let us never forget the men and women who gave their lives for the freedom we live by. Let us also pray for our POWs and MIAs who have also given of themselves for this great country, and on this Veterans Day may God bless all.
