LETTER: Appreciating Veterans

Dear Editor:
It is Veterans Day!  Why do we have Veterans Day?  It is to show appreciation to the vets for their sacrifice. What sacrifice?
They left the comfort of their homes, their families and loved ones to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces—Infantry, Army, Navy, Air Force or one of the many support groups.  A Veteran put their life in danger—some vets didn’t come back.  Some came back wounded in many different ways.
To show appreciation one day a year is an honorable thing to do because we have life, liberty and freedom.  We have the right to vote any ticket we please to or not. Vets did their duty, jobs and obligations.
It is only right that the rest of America be obligated to show their appreciation for the men and women who served their country.
