Statement By Randy Altschuler On Veterans Day

Even more important, please take a few moments to thank a veteran for his or her service and make a pledge to honor that service over the coming year.

"Honoring a veteran can come in many forms, ranging from volunteering in a V.A. Hospital to simply explaining to your children or grandchildren the battles our military has fought, the freedoms military men and women have defended and the ultimate sacrifice so many have made. We also need to remember in our prayers those presently in the service of our country in places like Afghanistan and Iraq and on bases and ships scattered around the world.

"All our veterans, whether they are still among us or have been taken from us, are true American heroes. God bless them and the United States of America."

When a man or woman become a soldier, there is a strong belief that we give and serve! When home is a place we look to live, and find our family there, we also hope for greater to believe that disadvantage would not forget the freedoms we stand, providing for rights and support across all lands! I fought my war on the homefront ground, against intruders of ethics unfound, but I knew the score to enlist that day to do what is right as an American brave. Our recognition is not a piece of paper, it si not the medal you pin on our chest in favor, its the salt that we can smell, the taste of life to live well, but we die inside to take more on for responsibility is what kept us moving strong. Now, as our days drift by for a moment of life, we saw our wills be driven by rights...but take a look as you give us space, we are lonely from the discrace...we see and here you well, but we alos know what death is and how we stood against the hell! Men do not forget, and further still our women are the soldiers that built a place for men to attest! look at us now, suicide still, its because we must keep face when nothing else will!
