lets not forget freedom is not free and if you see a vet thank them. also remember those in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Say a prayer and show your support for these men and women in uniform and the ones that have gone before us but not forgotten.

Each Veteran's Day we are told to "thank a vet for defending our freedom." I guess that is government propaganda, for our freedom does not come from a strong military, but from God.

Remember Nazi Germany, they had a very strong military, but lacked freedom; Russia had a strong military, but their people had no freedom

It is with great disrespect that our government sends our finest men to foreign shores to countries who have in no way threatened our freedom.

We had an invasion on our soil in an attempt to conquer us in 1812, and we were attacked at Pearl Harbor, in 1941. Since then we have had no attempt by any foreign country to take over our nation by military power.(9/11?) That was suicide, a dead person can't fight to take over our land or take our freedoms away.

Yet our freedoms are fast eroding. Why? We have to look from whence our freedoms come. The founders of our nation, for the most part, were Christians and knew God is the author of human freedom. Our constitution and bill of Rights were based on God's laws.

After the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Ben Franklin was asked what had been accomplished. He said they had created a republic, if you can keep it.

To keep it requires all citizens to be vigilant.
Turn to God, obey His word. Bring to the light all wrongdoing by local, state, and federal governments. Help those whose freedoms are being trampled on, you may be the next victim.
May we once again be a nation that we may ask God to Bless.

Whether or not you agree with the conflicts we as a nation are involved in, you should support the men and women who serve in our military. They do this by choice. Some of these men and women never come home. Hopefully we can end these conflicts. I fully support our men and women in our military. I may not always support the conflicts we are involved in. THANK TO ALL OUR VETS.

My post was in no way to be non-supportive to our military; they serve where they are sent.! posted above, "It is with great disrespect that our government sends our finest men to foreign shores to countries who have in no way threatened our freedom. "

Our government has hoodwinked Americans into believing our military in those oil-rich countries protects our Freedom-that is not true!

See: http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/19/opinion/iraq-wa...

Before the 2003 invasion, Iraq's domestic oil industry was fully nationalized and closed to Western oil companies. A decade of war later, it is largely privatized and utterly dominated by firms foreign to Iraq, including ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP and Shell. A host of American oil service companies are also set up in that country. Halliburton, being one of them, the Texas-based firm Dick Cheney ran before becoming George W. Bush's running mate in 2000.
