Thank You Veterans

By Joelyn Hansen
I work in an environment surrounded by people that have dedicated their life’s career to service. As police officers, these men and women, risk their lives each time they step out their front door in uniform in order for me to partake in the freedoms and comforts I’ve grown accustomed to my whole life.

It’s a good reminder – everyday – that freedom comes at a cost and there is always someone that must willingly keep constant vigil to maintain it.

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. Sometimes amongst the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holiday season, I fear it’s overlooked. So, I ask you not to forget. In fact, I ask you to thank those men and women that serve and have served our country each and every time you have the opportunity to do so.
