Some Gave All

I am very happy to enjoy all the freedoms I have. For that, I take today to thank our Veterans.  Many have fought and served our country. Sometimes they didn't agree with the fight but they felt that we deserved to be free.  For that I am truly thankful.  In the USA, in 1919, Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11th as a holiday to honor our Veterans.  Thank you Mr. Wilson.  But more importantly: Thank YOU to all the Veterans who have kept us free. Peace be with you.
