Veterans – They Are You, Don’t Forget Them

 

Veterans may be your fathers, your mothers, your brothers, your sisters, your neighbors, your teachers, your waiters, your bankers, your firefighters, your doctors, your gardeners, your janitors, your grocers, your police officers, your mechanics, your plumbers, your newspaper deliverer, your postal delivery worker, your dog walker, your attorney, your garbage man, your bus driver, your employer, your employee, your rival.  Out of all of those roles, and the numerous other roles other citizens have in our lives, one common thread is that veterans have in the past, or now, serve you and all of our extended American Family as committed members of the armed forces.

Don’t forget the sacrifices that veterans have and will continue to make so that all of us can continue to live a peaceful, comfortable life.

If you do not want your own children to become veterans, or worse, casualties, one day, make our leaders and government representatives find a way to resolve conflict at home and in the world, or find a way of advancing the agendas of their corporate sponsors, without using our children in the military as their fighting proxies.
