Thank you Veterans

by Mark Whalen


I wanted to take a moment today to say thank you to all the men and women who have served in the military over the years.

Many men and women have served our country with honor, and many have given their lives in defense of, and in service to our country.

All I know of war is what I’ve read and seen on tv and movies, which is to say, I know nothing about it.  I can’t imagine the horrors that veterans have faced during combat and what they deal with upon coming home.

Since 9/11, less than one percent of our population has served in the military.  They pay a tremendous price to keep us free.   To all the veterans who have ever served our country, and their families they leave behind, I thank you for your service and what you’ve done for all of us.

There are many organizations that benefit veterans and their families.  If you can help, here are some the websites for some great organizations:

Cape Cod cares for the troops         -sends care packages to our troops

Soldiers Angels                                  -offers many different ways to get involved

Homes for our troops                       - builds homes for wounded veterans


Give what you can and be sure to thank a veteran.

Here is a link to a Veterans Day speech by Oliver North.  It’s about five minutes, but worth it.
