In the years since our nation was born, veterans have given selfless service to their country in times of war and peace. At every critical stage in America's history, these men and women stepped up when they were needed, and their efforts to preserve the freedom we now enjoy made an impact at home and abroad. Celebrate this wonderful day by offering thanks to a veteran and by spending quality time with loved ones. Find time each and every day to practice selfless acts of kindness toward others. Our freedom was built upon the shoulders of heroes. Honor them by appreciating life and practicing benevolence. Enjoy a smile this Veterans Day.
