Thank you to our Veterans!

Today, November 11, 2010, is Veteran's Day.

Veterans Day is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is observed on November 11. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)

My Grandfather, several Aunts and Uncles, my Father-in-Law, a cousin, and my brother are all Veterans.
My brother is currently still in Iraq.

I am so grateful for each individual who has given their life, who has served our country, and those who currently serve. Some gave their lives, families struggle, and yet, each day, these Men and Women still bravely protect our freedom.

Thank you !!
