Honoring Our Veterans

First, please allow me to wish the United States Marine Corps a belated happy 229th birthday. The Marines have been at the forefront in defense of our nation, from the War of Independence to the War on Terror.

Today is Veterans Day. I wish to humbly express my gratitude to all who have served this nation and defended our freedom, and especially to all those currently serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world. I encourage everyone reading this blog to browse the "Supporting the Troops" list of links on the right hand side of this page, and make a donation to the organization of your choice.

Finally, we should also note the heroic sacrifices of our allies by recognizing that today is Remembrance Day in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. Thanks to these nations for their long friendship and for standing by our side in the War on Terror.
