Veterans Day is Thursday, November 11. It's a day where we celebrate and honor the men and women who have served in the military and fought to protect the freedoms that we hold dear as Americans.

My grandfather fought in World War II, my father is a Vietnam era Veteran, and my older brother served in the National Guard. I have many friends currently serving around the world. Needless to say, I was raised with a respect for members of the military and those that have put their lives on the line so that we can live in the greatest country in the world.

I want to say thank you to the men and women that have served our country, and those that continue to do so.
