Wishing all a great day on Veteran's Day 2020

Wishing everyone a great day on this Veteran's Day 2020
(borrowed from the internet)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

We Are Veterans.

We left home as teenagers for an unknown adventure.

We loved our country enough to defend it and protect it with our own lives.

We said goodbye to friends and family and everything we knew.

We learned the basics and then we scattered in the wind to the far corners of the Earth.

We found new friends and new family.

We became brothers and sisters regardless of color, race or creed.

We had plenty of good times, and plenty of bad times.

We didn't get enough sleep.

We smoked and drank too much.

We picked up both good and bad habits.

We worked hard and played harder.

We didn't earn a great wage.

We experienced the happiness of mail call and the sadness of missing important events.

We didn't know when, or even if, we were ever going to see home again.

We grew up fast, and yet somehow, we never grew up at all.

We fought for our freedom, as well as the freedom of others.

Some of us saw actual combat, and some of us didn't.

Some of us saw the world, and some of us didn't.

Some of us dealt with physical warfare, most of us dealt with psychological warfare.

We have seen and experienced and dealt with things that we can't fully describe or explain, as not all of our sacrifices were physical.

We participated in time honored ceremonies and rituals with each other, strengthening our bonds and camaraderie.

and I can add the following....

We are VETERANS of the US Armed Services, and we wouldn't trade or exchange our service for anything!    Let the sacrifices not be in vain!

One day isn't really enough to express the Thanks that our servicemen/women deserve. For many, as mentioned above, the scars of war sadly, wasn't fully left behind or never ended. GOD Bless them all and Thank You for Your Service.
