Today is Veteran’s Day, a time to thank the men and women who served or are serving in the military. My father served in World War II and he is 89 years of age. My brother served in the Viet Nam War. My brother was a hero, he has suffered from Post Traumatic Stress to the war. He was not honored when he came home however, he was recently honored in Reno, Nevada. I am so proud to know my dad and my brother.
There are so many who fought for our freedom. They sacrificed their lives so that we have freedom. We have freedom in Christ.
