Home of the Free Because of the Brave
We all owe a debt of gratitude to those who have served our country in the armed forces — and today we have the opportunity to honor them. In a nutshell, Veterans Day is a celebration to pay tribute to America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
From the earliest days of our new nation, men left the comfort of home to take up arms to preserve the independence our founders envisioned and declared. Coming from a military family, I’m well aware of the personal cost to the families — which is probably why most of my books focus on the military and the sacrifices they make.
Where would we be without them? Their legacy is the freedom that we enjoy in the United States today — a gift that is coveted by people from all over the world.
