Let us on Veteran’s Day take time to pause and reflect and pray. Pause to thank those millions of men and women, dead and alive, who performed the highest obligation of their citizenship . . . active service in the defense of their country in time of war. Let us pray for those who have shed so many tears for those who gave so freely of their lives so that we might be a free nation, a nation of choices.

Let us on Veteran’s Day, as Americans, stand up and be counted. Let us stand and honor this nation and what it stands for. Let us be thankful of all the advantages we enjoy. Let us count our blessings. Above all, let us on this day reaffirm our dedication to the cause of peace with honor throughout the world . . .

On this Veteran’s Day, let us say “Thank you Veterans!” . . .
