When Madame and I first went to work on Facebook posts over the summer, I knew that a Madame would post a Veterans' Day note with pride and thankfulness. As she expressed in her post on the anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin wall earlier this week, freedom is something that she never takes for granted. Madame's words to our veterans are too good for me to summarize, so I will ctrl-x and ctrl-v them in their entirety:
In most of our cities and towns, you’ll see memorials to brave Americans – some in uniforms of wars from long ago – who defended freedom. If you look down at their inscriptions, you’ll see that they were dedicated by the mothers, fathers, wives and orphans of the veterans who gave all for their country. In distant lands across the globe, you’ll find silent fields of white markers with the names of Americans who never came home, but who showed their dedication to their country by where they died. Today we honor those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as those who served and came home forever changed by the battlefield.
Remember all the veterans who fought and sacrificed for our freedom today, and then please take the time to thank our brave men and women currently serving in uniform. We owe them so much.
