As a Veteran, this is a special day for us, so remember your comrades, your family and try to share some stories with them today so they can try to understand what it means.
We enjoy many of the freedoms today because of the sacrifices made before.
Remember 11/11/11 at the 11th hour today, take a moment and pause.
Thanks to everyone for their service.
