Don't forget to thank all of those who put their lives on the line to protect our liberty and freedom. Take a minute today to show your respect for those who we've lost and those who are still with us, they deserve it.
This post is a thank you to all my relatives - grandfather, cousins, uncles - who have served. Today is the day that we thank you for all the other days we are able to enjoy because of you. Thank you and I love you.
I took a flight out of Germany that had just medevac'ed guys out of Afghanistan hours prior, and seeing burned guys my age with missing limbs/eyes really made the war feel much more real. The sacrifices people are making even right now...humbles me. Thanks so much. Glad we have this day to remember to be grateful.
Here in the UK, it's called Armistice Day, but like in the US, it's a day for brave heroes past and fallen. I work with several former service personnel and the day was important for them, they were keen for us to observe the two minute silence at the 11th hour. But I also give thanks for all the heroes in the US for being the best allies and brothers an island can ask for. British or American or Commonwealth all the men and women who serve in the forces are heroes. I owe many thanks to those who have done their country proud, past and present. Thanks.
