Veteran’s Day

Veteran’s Day was established at the end of World War II, when a new German government took office after the defeat of Hitler’s Nazi regime.  The purpose of Veteran’s Day is a celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

This is a day to honor our troops, both in peace and war.  A day to remember why America is free.  A day to know that only because of those who are called to duty for whatever reason, we are free.

Thank You to the men and women who served, and to those still serving.

Thank You to the families out there who serve alongside our service members.   We don’t think enough about the sacrifices these families make to support our troops every single day.

When you’re out and about today, take a moment if you see someone in uniform to thank them for their service.  It means a lot every day, but especially today.

    It’s a good habit to have, thanking vets.

    I thought maybe you would showcase red, white, and blue cupcakes you made in their honor 🙂
