Today is the observance for Veteran's Day. It was originally known as Armistice Day which marked the silencing of the guns of WWI on November 11, 1918.  Now we honor all our veterans who've ever served in our armed forces. National defense may be something we take for granted but in a dangerous age of Islamic terrorism and a nuclear North Korea, we should thank the men and women who put themselves in harm’s way to protect our country. Jesus said, "no greater love hath a man than he lay his life down for a friend." How much more so when soldiers fight and die for their fellow citizens back home whom they don't even know. So honor a veteran today. If you see one at the store or a restaurant, thank them for their service. They'll appreciate it!
