This picture is of the Fort McPherson National Cemetery in Nebraska.  The men and women buried here served their country with honor.

Whether you gave your life to the end or not, whether you were wounded or not, whether you served in combat or not, your service to our country is appreciated.  Service is not easy, but it is good.

Thank you.

May you have a blessed Veterans’ Day.

Blessed Veterans’ Day

IMG_3019

The picture above is of the United States flag at Fort Laramie, Wyoming.  Primarily cavalry served there during the time of the old west.  The men who served there served under circumstances that were not easy.  It is never easy to serve others, but it is good.

Veterans today also face hardship, especially those who served and were wounded in combat.  Some also lost close friends.  Not only do they carry the disabilities and scars from their wounds, sometimes they can also face discrimination and suspicion from those who do not understand.  It is especially hard when men who hold offices of trust, and who are supposed to protect others, also display discrimination and suspicion based on military service.

Whether you served in combat or not, whether you were wounded or not, your service to the people of this country is appreciated.  Service is not easy, but it is good.

May you have a blessed Veterans’ Day.
