Far too often, we take our freedom for granted and complain about the aches and pains of making a living in a world full of opportunity. For veterans who sacrificed their time, efforts, and sometimes even their lives serving our country it should be incumbent upon all of us to make sure they are treated with dignity and respect.

For the men and women who serve our country and protect our freedoms, we should provide them with additional benefits and recognize them for the heroes they are.
