Happy Veterans Day to all of the Veterans out there.

I want to send my appreciation to all the veterans out there. If it was not for you, we would not have this great country of ours. Too many people do not understand that our freedoms that we take for granite are not free. It is people like you that keep our country free and safe from the evils of the world. You helped us in times of great peril and more than not, you were triumphant. Form the Revolutionary War to WWII, Vietnam to Iraq, you have always served our country proud. You have bought liberty to many nations and have helped save the world from tyrrants around the world. And many of your stories are never told. My grandfatehr was a doctor in WWII and was one of the first doctors to arrive in Japan after Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He never really talked about it, but I was very proud of him while he was alive. I wish I could have talked to him more anout the sacrifices he had during the "War to End All Wars". He left when my mom was a few weeks old and my mom never saw him again until she was over 2 years old. He may have complained about being gone for so long, but he never once questioned the government about what he was doing. Our Military was there for a purpose. We were there to give the people of Japan the gift of liberty . This is what we are now doing in Iraq. You can not make a democracy over night. It tool our nation 11 years before we had a constitution after the Revolutionary War. It tooks many years in Germany and Japan after WWII to transform their societies into liberty loving democracies. Again I want to trhank all our military soldiers out ther. The Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and the Coast Guard for their gallant actions from the time the country was born for their gift to us-- Liberty.
