On this Veterans Day we remember with gratitude and respect, the many men and women who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces around the world. In a special way we remember and pray for those who risk their lives each day to protect our freedom and those who have lost their lives in this pursuit. We give thanks to God for the brave sacrifices our veterans have made to serve, with selfless devotion, the cause of freedom, truth, and peace. May God bless all of our Veterans, living and deceased, and may God bless the United States of America. Amen.
