How can we thank those who pay the ultimate price for our freedom? How can we begin to express appreciation for their willingness to serve?
I love to honor our veterans every day of the year, but Veteran's Day is another chance to say thank you.
Roanoke-Benson High School sends their thank you message by hosting an annual assembly. Each year, they invite a speaker to address the crowd of students and community people.
My favorite part of the whole assembly is listening to the band play the songs from each branch of service. As the veteran's song is played, he is to stand to his feet. And as the veterans stand, I begin to tear up when I think about the huge sacrifice they have made--the huge gift that they have given the American people.
Thank you, veterans, and may God bless you!
