To All The Veteran’s and Veteran’s Families Who Read TodaysMower – Thank You!

Most of us have plans for this July 4th weekend that will involve spending time with family, cookouts and fireworks. July 4th also gives us an opportunity to remember and thank those who have served our nation in the military and helped keep The United States of America free.

From the Revolutionary War to our friends and family serving overseas today; members of our Armed Services have over the years bravely answered the call to serve time and time again. As always, our service women and men are working hard in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere to defend freedom. Please support our veterans and do not forget the sacrifices they have made for our nation.

The following pictures were sent to me in an email. I don’t know the original sources but to me they are a gentle reminder of what I should do for the veterans I know and their families.
