We owe so much to the men and women who serve and have served in our Armed Forces, so it’s sad that Veteran’s Day is one of those “optional” holidays that has become less and less important in the United States.

If it were up to me, it would rank right up there with Independence Day, since it is because of our veterans that we are able to celebrate Independence Day each year.

So take the time to thank a veteran or someone active in the Armed Services, we certainly don’t thank them enough.

    I was in Ontario, Canada the weeek of Veteran’s Day a couple years ago. Everyone–business men and women, store clerks, waiters and waitresses, school kids, everyone–wore the little red “Flanders Field” poppies the Vets sell outside the stores here. They explained to me that several times during WWI the entire 18-25 yr old male population of a Canadian town was wiped out in one gas attack or other horrific European battle. The per capita casualties for Canada in WWI were astounding. Those who made it home were never taken for granted. This is one area we need to be more like them.
