On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month the guns fell silent. And that is how Veteran's Day began at the end of World War 1. The guns did not fall silent for long so that is why we need to remember to thank those who have fought so hard for our freedom. We are truly blessed to be Americans and have the freedoms we have. And this would not be possible without all of the brave men and women who have fought for these freedoms in the past, now in the present, and who will continue to fight in the future. So here's a little poem to help remember to thank a veteran:
When you see someone in a uniform
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,
Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.
Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
"Thanks for what you’re doing;
To keep us safe in the USA!"

I have one military person that you can thank in a big way today too. I told you I'd keep bringing this up. My birthday wish is a chance for you to thank a current member of the armed forces. Frank Garcia serves in the Army and is still in Eastern Europe trying to bring his daughter home. You can help make that possible with a small donation to their adoption. The chip in is on my side bar. What better way to thank a veteran than giving him the one thing he wants most in this world; his Kellsey to be home for Christmas!
