While most are thankful during a holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas, I am thankful on Veteran’s Day. My Dad, a disabled Army veteran, is my hero. He believes in our country and he was willing to die to defend it. The military honor instilled in him carried over to our family life.
We had only a few rules: honor our country, keep pushing forward, and put family first.
I’m proud of my Dad – and my grandfather – for serving our country. I’m proud to be a member of the American Legion. I’m proud to be an American. And I’m proud to have the opportunity to own a business.
It’s because of veterans that I have the freedom to own a business and chart the course of my life.
I also want to thank all the businesses and organizations that are generously offering discounts or giveaways to the veteran’s today. I believe the veterans should be honored not just on November 11 but every day.
Please take a moment today to thank a veteran. Then, make it a point to be thankful every day for the freedom we have. Each day is gift. And each day of freedom is made possible by those who serve our country.
Thank you, Dad. And thank you veterans.
Who are you are honoring today?
