VETERANS DAY 2018(An Essay)…

(Illustration by Jenn Webster)

    On November 12th of this year, our nation will observe a holiday in which veterans are honored for their hard work of protecting our country, and by veterans I mean those who are the veterans who serve our United States Armed Forces: The Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard. On that day we would and should give our heartfelt thanks for their never-ending work of protecting our great country…
But I really do not think that we should limit our heartfelt thanks to our veterans to just one day; We should always thank our vets every day and forever, and that is because the protect all of us in this great country of ours 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 52 weeks a year, and 365-days-a-year. Sure, people can talk about superheroes and other heroes in action films, but the real, true heroes happen to be our veterans, because they put their lives on the line each day to defend our country from great evil, while saving other fellow soldiers and air and sea servicemen from their own dangers.

But lately, while we should be honoring while thanking our veterans, there are other vets somewhere who are not getting all of the credit that they should deserve, and that, to me, is a shame.
Veterans should very well be treated with the very same kind of treatment that we have for our families: With love, dignity, honor, and respect; They should not ever be treated like some kind of throwaway toy or stray animal; Thy should, and always should be treated just like any Armed Forces veteran…They have protected us and our country for all of the very freedoms that we deserve, so why cannot veterans be treated with honor and thanksgiving? If it had not been for those incredible veterans of our Armed Forces who put their lives on the line each and every day to protect our country so that we can have those freedoms, then we, as well as this grand and great country of ours, would be in the most gravest of danger in more ways than we could ever imagine.

   So, I is with that that, in order to keep our country as well-protected and as so very free as possible, we must have our Armed Forces to do the most important job of all, and that is to protect and serve our great, grand, and wonderful United States of America, and when as well as while they do, we must thank and honor our veterans, not just some veterans or even most veterans, but ALL veterans, no matter what their race, creed, color, or even religion.
On Veterans Day, please take time out from whatever kind of schedule that you plan on, and thank our veterans of the Armed Forces for the work, as well as the continuing work, of keeping America safe. May the Lord God bless them all.
