Be strong and courageous.

Do not be afraid or terrified because of them,
for the Lord your God goes with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you. 
Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV)

Dear reader, 

Not only the butterfly in the photo, all life is very sensitive and fragile.

Soldiers in combat have to be strong and courageous.
And, they risk their life. Daily.
For their country.
For us, our families, and for our freedom.

While many realize that Veterans Day,
which always falls on November 11, is a day to honor our Veterans,
few realize the historical significance behind the day.

Veterans Day originated as Armistice Day and
marked the end of hostilities of World War I
that occurred at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month (in 1918).
Therefore, the day is always recognized on November 11th,
regardless of the day of the week the 11th falls on.

Let's not take our freedoms for granted but honoring Veterans.
It is the least we can do.
Every day.

My special thanks go to our Team Members, Jack and Gary.
