Thankful challenge, day 10

Today is Veterans’ Day, so it’s only fitting that I mention I am thankful to all the men and women who have served and are currently serving our country. It is such a huge sacrifice, and for not much in return. Hard, grueling training, months and often years spent away from home, and no tangible reward. There are intangibles: comradery, respect, honor but far too many don’t get to experience those in their lifetime. Memorial Day will come and then we can pause to remember those who died in service. But today – today is a day to take time to honor and thank those who are still with us. Do you know a veteran? Please take a moment or three to thank them for their service to our country, and for fighting for our freedoms.
