"Thankful Every Day" by: Jennifer Bicknell

Veterans’ Day is coming up next Monday and I wanted to take a moment to offer my thanks to all the Veterans, both those who have served in the past and those who serve today. I am thankful for the sacrifices not only they have made and continue to make for our country, but also the sacrifices of their families. As a former high school U.S. History teacher, I taught my fair share of lessons on the various wars that occurred throughout our history as a nation, and even those that occurred before there even was a United States of America, and I always tried to foster a respect and understanding of those sacrifices to my students.

So if you know a veteran, say “Thank you!” If you see a veteran, say “Thank you!” Be thankful for our veterans, not just on November 11th but every day.
