Honoring veterans

There are two days every year — Memorial Day and Veterans Day — when we are especially reminded to honor and remember our veterans. Memorial Day is the more solemn occasion because we are called to remember those who have died. Veterans Day, however, is a day to celebrate.

It is not a celebration of war, but it is a day to recognize the importance of having a strong military and the pride Americans feel for our servicemen and our veterans. Thanks to them, we are still a free and powerful nation. Thank you, veterans, for keeping our country safe and strong.
