Today we celebrate Veterans Day of the year 2013. I would like to give thanks to all the veterans. Thank you to all that have served and those who are currently serving. Few people know your struggle and what you deal with, and the pain that you go through.
Being a service member is not all about Honor and Glory. These men and women, deal with long days and long nights. They spend many days, weeks, and months away from their family. Some service members have missed huge chunks of their children lives. For those service members that are single, they deal with adjusting to living in a new area without any family. But through it all service members continuing moving forward and doing great things.
Although we continue to live our lives do not forget those service member who have given their lives in the longest war that our nation has been a part of. As of November 7, 2013 there has been a total of 3,395 coalition deaths in Afghanistan and a total of 4,486 American troops were killed in IRAQ from 2003 to 2012. Only 1 percent of the American population are a member of the military and I am apart of that 1 percent.
Remember FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.
Remember to Always be
Fierce and Fabulous
