I admit that too many years i failed to truly acknowledge the purpose of this holiday. My father was very proud of being an Air Force pilot, and being able to serve our Nation. He, like many of the men and women who have served us since the 1700’s, is no longer with us. Today and every Veterans day in the future I will mindfully remember all he and other Veterans have done for our country, and acknowledge the sacrifices of our active military men and women. Stop, put up the U.S. flag. I encourage you to do so as well.
I can’t imagine our US without you! We are forever grateful. Mahalo nui loa.
