Honoring Veteran's Day

   Veteran’s day is an important day in our lives to honor the men and women who serve this country, so we can enjoy our freedom everyday.  Along with being grateful to them, we know there are families who sacrifice a lot without them.   Proudly display your American flag and give a Veteran a thank you for their service and for the glorious freedom we all share.
