Thank You, Veterans

Yesterday (Wednesday, November 11th), was Veterans Day. For those of you who want some light on the subject, Veterans Day is a day where we honor all of our veterans for keeping us safe.

This Veterans Day, a memorial ceremony was held in the middle of the Texas Veterans Day Parade (Austin). This year's theme was "On the South Steps of the State Capitol". But why go so far away to celebrate, when here in Flower Mound, the Credit Union of Texas sponsored a relay race where each runner ran approximately two miles to commemorate our nation's veterans and their service all-whilst carrying the American Flag.

It wrapped up with a post-event celebration at the CAC from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Why do we make such a big deal to celebrate these people? Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day is celebrated to honor the soldiers who are still alive and here with us today. We have this day separate from memorial day to acknowledge the courage these ex-soldiers had to go through to transition from the raging battle field to returning to every day life with average people. This transition is never easy for soldiers, so we take this day out of our busy year to not only honor the work they've done on the battlefront, but for the courage and bravery they display as they continue on.

Thank you Veterans ... America is the land of the free, because of the brave!
