Veterans – Men and woman of the United States that at one point decided that the freedoms we enjoy can’t be enjoyed unless someone sacrifices their time and lives to protect and defend those freedoms. Veterans are Soldiers, Airmen, Seaman, and Marines – The strongest military to walk the face of the earth.
Without Veterans this country wouldn’t still be standing today. We wouldn’t have rose to the highest power in the world and as we are starting to see our country fall its because of those in the White House that are failing not only the people of the United States, but are failing our Veterans. The first Veterans of this country fought the first fights that removed us from Great Britain. They fought the first front lines and fought for something we are still fighting for today. The idea that a man or woman is free, freedoms that are a God given right, not a right given by birth. That’s one of the biggest issues with our Nation today, we continue to think that just because your born in America you have been granted a free pass to all the freedoms here, but those rights weren’t just given to all Americans, but they were formed by those that believed that those rights were given to you by God and God alone. Whether you believe it or not, God formed this country on the backs of Veterans. He protects this country each and every day on the backs of Veterans and the future of this country will survive on the back of Veterans. Veterans are the true back bone of this country. History shows us that through Veteran ingenuity we prevailed during War War I and II. After those wars Veterans came home with the knowledge of War and began to build a better America. Same thing with the Iraq and Afghan war, Veterans came home to help build a better America. There are now more representatives in our government that are Veterans that are working hard to make this country better. Its what we do as Veterans, we have the passion to serve and when we leave service we never truly stop serving our country. If your a Veteran and your not plugged in…you should be. Veterans serving Veterans!!
No civilian will ever understand the ties Veterans have to America. Its not just a place we call home and its not just a place where are families live, it is the ultimate place we will defend with out lives. Its something that is truly hard to understand. It takes courage and fortitude to become a Veteran.
On this Veterans day it is even more important to thank a Veteran for their service, the state of the world we live in may depend more on Veterans than we can imagine.
I say thank you to all the Veterans before me, during my service and those that continue to serve this great country. Volunteering to serve your country to me is the highest honor that you can bestow on yourself and your family. I am proud of every soldier that decides to serve and those that feel the call to one day serve.
Happy Veterans day! Stay Safe, Call a Veteran if you need help!!

One thought on “Veterans Day”
Great message Brian!
You’re right, this nation was built on the backs of Veterans, they are the nation’s backbone, and it will destroy itself from the inside out should it refuse to acknowledge that and respect and care for its veterans.
There is a serious problem with the notion of the idea that a nation can “grant” freedoms. ALL men and women are born “free”… the only real thing anyone has any ability to do is deny them those freedoms. Think about it, if you completely remove government and/or all other forms of standing bodies, the individual is yet still “free”. Freedom is the natural born state in life, the way God intended life to be… but with institution and government come oppression, and the only real decision governments have are how much or how little oppression to impose.
What makes America great is that the founding fathers approached the idea from the “inherent freedom” perspective and decided that a government purely limited in its ability to impose oppression over its people was a good thing. In that respect, they were the first to do so. The problems of today are caused by the last hundred years of politicians who have chosen to willfully disregard and dismiss those ideas as they built up the self-serving Oligarchy bureaucracy that exists today – corrupted and evil to its core.
In the near future, it very well may be the veteran, once again, who must be called upon to set things right once again… because the rest of the nation – it is clear – lacks the backbone to do it themselves.
