    So many young people today will never know the sacrifices that our U.S. Military gave in order for them to live in a free democracy today. While I would never wish these experiences on anyone, I do wish that everyone uses these examples to better understand what life was like in earlier times and to thank veterans and the military families of those who lost their lives in the line-of-duty while serving their Country.

    Regardless of your individual position on whether any previous wars were justified or not, remember that these men and women had no control over the declaration of war; instead they answered a call to action.
