A Veterans’ Day Salute

This is clearly a time of change and challenge for our military. Our nation is blessed to possess arguably the finest all-volunteer military force in history. The men and women who are our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines continue to distinguish themselves under difficult circumstances. On this Veterans’ Day, they deserve our enthusiastic support.

Equally deserving of our support and gratitude are those who have served in the past, and the families of those who have made the sacrifice to choose a career in the service. In the midst of the busyness of our lives, it is appropriate for us to pause and take the time to offer prayers on behalf of the fallen – and their families. And time for us to offer words of appreciation for faithful service rendered by the thousands of men and women who have chosen to serve with our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.

Jim Savard, a regular reader of The White Rhino Report, has sent along this e-card, that I am pleased to share with other readers:

To all of my family members, friends and readers who are veterans, I offer my gratitude, appreciation, admiration, respect and love.

God bless.
