Hug a veteran today. Seriously! They risked their lives for the sake of our country -- they should be thanked as often as possible. Even if the war seemed or seems pointless, they still went to some other country and put their lives on the line for every other American (and quite often for other countries!) here at home.
Remember -- FREEDOM ISN'T FREE!! If it wasn't for our Armed Forces, we'd still be bowing before English royalty. America: the Best of them all. Never forget. May every soldier who paid the ultimate price for our freedom rest in peace.
