Our view: A debt of gratitude to our armed forces
Each day serves as a reminder of how much veterans and members of U.S. military units have sacrificed for our county during the years.
One need only open a newspaper or turn on a television to see images of Americans at war. And so, it's not difficult to imagine the many men and women who were in the service during World War II, during the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War and other military conflicts. Some of those veterans are no longer with us. Some lost their lives in war. And others, particularly members of the Greatest Generation, are dying at an alarming rate.
And so, as we observe Veterans Day on Thursday, it's fitting to say thank you to those Americans who have fought and who are fighting to ensure our everyday rights. We thank them, and we pray for them.
They truly are heroes.
