Changing the Course of a Nation

Veterans Day


I can’t say who this is or what he is doing because of military regulations. Suffice it to say, he is a very close relative and I had some part in bringing him into the world. I am very proud of him for doing his part to protect and defend out country. I am proud of all people who are serving in the military. This particular photo was snapped at a celebration when he became an officer. I won’t disclose what branch, but we are proud of all our branches, especially those branches that fly airplanes.

For those of you who get confused between Veterans Day and Memorial Day, Veterans Day is the day we celebrate those who are living now and are currently serving or previously served in the military.

Considering the tenuous nature of our foreign policy coming down from the Commander in Chief, I as a mother, have reasons to be concerned. Regardless of how you may feel about foreign entanglements, the best approach is to offer our encouragement and support to those who are obligated to protect us.

Most employers don’t require their employees to commit to multi-year contracts demanding large chunks of time away from their families, forced vaccinations and risk of death. When this is coupled with the current policies of giving our hard-earned tax dollars to people we hardly know so they can engage in wars, it should scare all of us.

That’s why they deserve to be honored. The foundational reason we have a national government is for our national defense. If you’re doing something to honor the Veterans in your area, I would love to hear about it. You can write me here:

1.) Thank a Veteran. A note of gratitude is so valuable. I know how good it makes me feel to get an e-mail from one of you responding to my newsletter. You can bless someone just by a simple word.

2.) Go to a Veterans Day Celebration. It will do your heart good.

3. Help us communicate. Any contribution will be used to help further our research to inform others. You can mail a check to Cynthia Davis; 1008 Highway K; O’Fallon, Missouri 63366.
