Saluting their sacrifice

We recently took time out from our work day schedule to remember the veterans, living and dead, and it makes one think of all the reasons we have veterans in the first place.


You did stop for at least one minute and remember America's veterans, didn't you?

Perhaps you walked up to a veteran and said thank you for defending your country, or maybe you smiled at a veteran and asked if he or she was having a nice day. You did do something, didn't you?

You are free to live in Georgia in our great country of America because of veterans who fought for your freedom, and if you were so wrapped up in your small little world that you forgot about Veterans Day, then you ought to hide your face.

Many people, upon discovering Friday, Nov. 11, was the holiday for Veterans Day, asked the age old question "Does that mean there will be no mail today?" They were more concerned about the mail than about the reasons for this Veterans Holiday.

We are free to write this editorial and free to go to the church of our choice, free to live where we wish too, and free to work where we choose, and the veterans had a great deal to do with the fact that we are free.

America is not perfect, but it is the best country on earth, and one of the reasons this country is the best, is our veterans.

This editorial was published many years ago and the State Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary and local VFW and LAVFW Post No. 6672 would like to remind everyone how great our veterans are to us by bringing the editorial to the attention of our community.
