There are not too many people unaware that Wednesday, November 11, 2015, is Veterans Day. Over the years the numbers of veterans have increased due to more than a decade and a half of military conflicts in the Mideast. Citizens have shouldered some of the responsibility to make sure all our veterans know how much they are appreciated.

We want to take time to thank members of our family, friends and all those who have unflinchingly risked their lives to defend the constitution of the Untied States and all who have fought and are fighting to defend our country.
