REMEMBER THEM - AND THANK THEM
REMEMBER THE BRAVE
Please take a moment today, even if it's in the quiet of your own home, to pause and remember the brave men and women who have fought for our country.
This Veteran's Day, November 11, 2008, is the 90th anniversary of the signing of the armistice in World War I. Fifty-four years ago President Eisenhower signed into law the act that created this day of remembrance.
Honor the men and women who serve in our armed forces throughout the world, and particularly those who fight in Afghanistan and Iraq.
PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS
Please also take a moment to say a few words for our President-elect - a man with no military experience who, in just a few short weeks, will become our Commander-in-Chief. Say a few words for him, for the men and women who will serve under him and for all of us..
This photo is of the Florence, Italy, American Military Cemetery and Memorial, where more than 4400 Americans who fought and died in World War II are buried. I've been to this site and find it impossible to describe the emotions of that day.
