Veteran's Day


It's Veteran's Day.


 It's also 11/11/11.

 There are parades and celebrations all over the city of Indianapolis (and the United States) today.



 It's a solemn celebration because we all know what it takes to endure wars, protests, being away from family, sacrificing the perfect American dream life, and perfect medical health. 


Here's to you Veterans; America's freedom fighters, patriots, battle scars, and heros. 


These celebrations always remind me that there was a time where enlisting was NOT a choice. 


And yet, that generation taught us the most about how to treat the military. 
We are receiving those benefits and changes today so that the military coming home from war won't face those same obstacles that generation had too. 


Courage.
Strength.
Honor.
Dedication.
Bravery.
Admiration.
