11. I am thankful for the men and women that fight for our country, and protect our freedom. I am thankful for their families that worry for them and support them while they are away risking their lives for millions of people they have never met. I am thankful that as an American I am free, free to choose my occupation, my spouse, my religion, what I say, my how many children I will have, where I live, what I eat, how to spend my money, which gun to carry, and my ability to vote for my representation. Not only this Veteran's Day but every day, I am very thankful for the thousands of soldiers and their families that give up everything so that I can have everything. Happy Veteran's Day!
