I am extremely thankful to be an American. God and country have deep meaning for me. I respect our veterans for preserving America's history while protecting her future.
Many of my relatives and friends are veterans. They served in various branches of the U. S. military, and at different times throughout history. But, the importance of their duty and honour, their reasons for serving, are the same. Their personal service to our country meant something to them. It means something to me, as well. As an American, I am beholden to our veterans.
America’s strength is rooted in the service of its men and women. Their animal counterparts should be honoured for the unique work they do, too. I appreciate each and every one of these veterans for providing and protecting our freedoms and beliefs.
