A little patriotism is a good thing. And gratitude for sacrifices made and duty done is pleasing to God. Thanks to my father-in-law, my grandpa, my uncles, to all the veterans in my family and to all the veterans in yours.

    I wrote the following on another blog regarding Veterans Day

    I think we need to distinguish the high honor our troops deserve for putting so much at risk and standing in harm’s way from whom they are serving and whether they’re defending our freedom. Why? It is because if the President is sending our troops in for any other reason than to defend our freedom, then our troops are serving special interests rather than either serving our country or defending our freedom.

    To not make this distinction is to allow the government to use the valor of our troops as a moral shield for its foreign policies. To be so busy or preoccupied that we are ignorant of the reasons why our government is sending our troops into potential or actual battles means, at best, that we will honor our troops with our lips but not our hearts.

    We who have served, and those serving, say thank you.
