Veterans day what it means to me

Ok this pst is pretty much something that is very near and dear to my heart.  Sunday is Veteran’s Day a day we celebrate all of our veteran’s of wars from past to present.  I have two veteran’s in my family who mean the world to me, my grandpa was a navy veteran who did 20 years in the navy and retired. He passed away back in 95 but i am still very proud of his accomplishments for serving his country and being the person who he was and i miss him dearly. My husband is a us army veteran who served twice in iraq and once in afghanistan and has seen the good, the bad and the ugly.  I am extremely proud of him he is braver and has more courage than i ever could.  I always try to say thank you to our veterans for their service because its because of them that we have the rights and the freedoms we do today and i think it’s important we as americans show them our appreciation and our gratitude.  These men and women from young to old have sacrificed their lives and time with their families so we can have a much safer place to live today and i appreciate all of their sacrifices as well as their families sacrifices because the families make it possible for these men and women to do their jobs so when you are out this weekend and if you know or run into a veteran please take the time to say thank you to them for their service and let them know how much you apprecitate them because we owe them our gratitude.  As the wife of a veteran having to watch your loved one going to war is not an easy thing to do especially when you are not guaranteed them to come home safe and sound.  I would also like to remember the veterans who gave their lives for this country your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Do you have a veteran in your family or know any veterans?
