Letter: Show appreciation for our veterans

The American way of life gives everyone the freedom to pursue their dreams and accomplish their goals. That freedom is something that we often take for granted as we live our daily lives. The truth is that freedom comes with a great price. Military service members from across Minnesota put their lives on the line so the rest of us can live ours.

That’s why we honor our military veterans every year on Nov. 11. Without their sacrifice, our way of life wouldn’t be possible. So if you see a veteran, let them know how much their service means to you.

In fact, thank them any day of the year. Just because Nov. 11 is Veterans Day, doesn’t mean we have to limit our appreciation to just one day a year. Service members help protect our way of life every day. Let’s show appreciation just as often.
