Another Veterans Day has come and gone, but the debt the American people owe to the men and women who have worn the uniforms of the armed forces of this nation in time of peace and/or war remains. Throughout its history, this nation has had to struggle against a variety of enemies that have threatened it. In each of those times America’s sons and daughters have heeded the call to arms to defend their country and vanquish those enemies. Even in times of peace, men and women in the uniforms of our armed forces have stood guard so that their fellow Americans might continue to enjoy the blessings of liberty that come with being an American. Today, we live in a time of wars and rumors of wars and an increasingly uncertain future, but regardless of what that future holds the American people can, as in previous generations, be certain that America’s fighting men and women stand ready to defend this great nation and the freedoms it embodies. God bless the men and women of America’s armed forces and God bless the United States of America.
