Veteran's Day

To all our veterans, and to all servicemen and -women who are still on active duty, thank you for your service to our country and for fighting for our freedom. I'm just sorry most Americans only stop to thank you on patriotic holidays; you deserve our thanks every day for your sacrifices large and small.

Although the public seems to have forgotten, freedom isn't free. Or, to quote Sam Gamgee from The Two Towers (movie version), "there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fightin' for." The next time you see one of our veterans or servicemen/women, take the time to say thank you. There are lots of web sites where you can support our soldiers.

Operation Gratitude * Cards for Heroes * Letters from Home

If you know of any other good links to support our troops, let me know!

UPDATE Nov. 15. I just found this video in my e-mail and couldn't resist including it here:

Warning: Get out the Kleenex, especially if you've lost a loved one in the service.
