I just want to say how proud and honored I am that I am an American! Several members of my family have served for our country, including both grandfathers, father, several uncles, cousins and brother. I feel safe and protected because of service people like them.
Thank you, and Happy Veteran's Day!
I would like to say thank you to all veterans of all wars. My family includes veterans of all the branches of service. It started with my grandfather who served in WWI, my father in WWII, uncles and cousins in Korea and Vietnam, my son-in-law in Iraq and now my oldest grandson is currently a Marine and will be serving in Afghanistan.
I greatly appreciate the joys and freedoms these veterans have made possible to all of us. Again, Thank You.
We live a short distance from the home of the man who wrote "In Flanders Fields" and every time I pass it I am reminded of the bravery of our soldiers and the costs of war.
Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote it on May 3, 1915 after he witnessed the death of his friend, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, only 22 years old, the day before. He lost his own life 3 years later.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
For all the men in the armed services and those who have died protecting and defending our way of life - I have no words to express my awe and appreciation of what you have given up for this country. Our family knows a little something about these men. My grandfather served in World War I on the fiekds in France. My great uncle served in the second World War, my father spent 30 years in the Air Force and served in Vietnam. I remember the sheer terror of every black car that drove down our street. My husband also served in Vietnam along with many of my friends. We were lucky that our family came home from these wars. Many of our friends and neighbors did not. Our son is active duty Navy and has served in both of the Gulf wars. I am so proud of this military heritage in our family and I have such respect for he men and women serving their country today. One day is not enough but on this day I will remember all those brave men and women. Last summer I took my granddaughters to Washington DC - one of our stops was the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I saw the changing of the guard many times as a child and it still sends chills down my spine. And for 30 minutes - two giggly 12 year olds sat in silence and respect. I will talk to everyone I meet today about our men and women who have served and are serving today - and I hope you will too.
My husband spent 15 years in the Canadian Forces and I am grateful for his perspective as a soldier, but today, our family is remembering the sacrifice of his best friend who was killed in Afghanistan last Christmas. Our hearts go out to his wife and his girls who live with the reality of that sacrifice every day. Canada has lost over 130 soldiers and the US and the UK so many more, along with soldiers past and present from all over the world. They have helped preserve the freedoms we enjoy today. Thank you.
Happy Veterans day to all who have served our nation, past and present. Thank you for your courage, protection and dedication to preserving our homeland and our freedom. Where would we be without you? We take today, and every day, to honor you.
