How many of us remember the sacrifices that were made to preserve our country's and the world's freedom or do we think of it as a day of being off from work or great sales in the stores???

It is a day to remember those who have served and those who do serve to keep us free.

I remember this day being called Armistice Day!  I know that dates me. 

While we are remembering those of the military, let's also remember their families who also sacrificed for us.  Many homes broke up over the cost of a loved one being away too far and too long.  These too were military casualties.  Thankfully, most survived the strain of separation and sacrifice and there were loving arms waiting for them when they got home.

The military can be difficult for families.  But it can serve them too.
