Veterans Day 2018! In this contentious world and country, we owe our freedoms and liberties to our combined armed forces with their continued vigilance and readiness. For over 240 years, people the world over have sought out the USA for opportunity and a better way of life. For all our critics and enemies, no one can dispute that the United States is still the unparalleled land of hope. In today’s crazy world scenario, we task our military with ferreting out undeclared and shadowy zealots as well as holding perennial rivals like Russia and China at bay, who if they had our military strength and firepower, would potentially seek to do us harm.
So, on this Veterans Day, we reflect and honor those brave souls that have protected our way of life and freedom since 1776. And, we salute and thank today’s US Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force and Coast Guard forces who routinely face danger on a daily basis from any number of hostiles around the world; all who want what our military has fought so long and hard to preserve on our behalf for over two hundred years. So fly “Old Glory” at full staff this weekend to celebrate our military and those who have fought and died for our country since its inception. Be sure to attend a Phoenix-area Veterans Day event to acknowledge and thank the unsung heroes that keep us safe. We’ll see you at the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade in downtown Phoenix on Monday, November 12th starting at 11:00 am.
