When my kids got home from school yesterday, we sat down and discussed what exactly Veterans Day is all about. I then asked my 5 year old to draw a picture and tell me what it meant to her. She drew the picture above, and told me that she is happy to be free because she really wants to be a vet (the animal kind) when she grows up.

My 9 year old wrote the following Thank You Note… (you can click to make it larger)

Now it’s my turn…

The definition of a Veteran is a person who has had long service or experience in a particular occupation or field such as the military. Well that is not exactly what I think of when I think of a Veteran. I’d describe a Veteran more like this… a person, who has sacrificed everything….everything…for me and my family. A hero, really. A hero is defined as a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. Now that sounds more like it! A hero.

So what does Veterans day mean to me? FREEDOM. Freedom that it seems I take for granted everyday, as I go about my busy life. So many Veterans and active members of the military actually give up their freedoms, to make sure that you and I have ours. My family and I will wake up together on Christmas morning, and every other morning for that matter, but I can’t help to think about those serving around the world that won’t actually have that freedom this year. Although I realize that these two little words that I am about to say really will never be enough, because freedom really isn’t free at all, it comes at a pretty high price…a price that our heroes are so unselfishly willing to pay. To all of you, my heroes, I say, “Thank You”!
