Veterans Day November 11, 2017 – Noble Warrior Roll Call.

September 11, 2017 marks the 16 year university of the attacks on World Trade Center, Pentagon and American Airlines flight 93. Shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, President George W. Bush launched what has become known as the “war on terror.”

With current military actions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and 20+ other hot spots around the world, there seems to be no end in sight. One thing has become apparent; our military forces are stretched very thin. Many Army & Marine families are on their third or fourth deployments.

To make matters worse, American’s in general, are so busy trying to keep their heads above water, they have lost sight of the personal devastation these wars have inflicted on our military families.

Celebrate Veterans Day with Us!

Every year Americans set aside one day to honor all of their Veterans. Being a Marine veteran from a family of veterans and a Gold Star Father, this is one of my most important days. Every year, like millions of other patriotic Americans, I attend Veteran celebrations and honor all of my brothers in arms.

This year is going to be different. November 11, 2017 Gold Star Dads will do a special honor ceremony for Americas Global War on Terror Heroes.
