As G.I. Joe fans, I’d hope many of us would be a bit more acutely aware of the importance and significance of celebrating those folks who volunteer to put their lives on the line for the safety of us and our country.
In reality, we’d celebrate their service more than one day per year, but on this day especially, let’s take a moment to think of our Veterans and show some appreciation for what they do.
It seems like we shouldn’t need a reason to remember those brave men and women who have fought for our country, but please take a moment today to pay your respects and remember those same people. Being in the G.I. Joe community we are all especially aware of the sacrifices made to protect our freedom. Let’s not forget.
Whether spending the actual Veterans Day remembering yesterday, or whether you’re taking a day today to think about the men and women who have served our country, the important thing is that you take a moment to remember folks who have given their time and their lives to defend our country and preserve our freedom.
Less than a week after an election that has elicited such an antagonistic response throughout the United States, hopefully any anger or conflict has been replaced, if temporarily, with remembrance for the most important part of that day. The fact that we, as a democracy, are permitted to make our voices heard, no matter what that voice might say is a true credit to the men and women who have fought (and died) to give us that voice.
To all those who serve and who has served… a sincere thank you.
