No one can repay the 650,000 Americans who have lost their lives on duty over the years, or the millions injured, but we can still recognize the 25 million veterans who are still living today.
Veterans day is a time for remembrance and thanks to the fearless few who stand for people who they have never met, and will never have the chance to meet. The people who believe in our country, serve its leaders, and in many cases pay the ultimate price for freedom for us all.
In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
Take the time today to vocalize the gratitude you feel for our nation’s soldiers. Let them know you respect their sacrifices and how they have touched your lives without ever knowing them.
Employees at the Men’s Divorce Law Firm are related to and friends of veterans. We know both the mantle of pain and honor that our soldiers willingly place upon their shoulders. So we would like to take this moment to say thank you to all those who have served, are currently, or will in the future. Your sacrifices mean our freedom, and that does not go unnoticed.
