True, some were drafted to fight, but not one of these individuals would say it was not a life changing experience for them. The men and women who helped shape the face of this country through their honor, legacy, and patriotism are those we call veterans.

It is serving your country and standing up for what one believes is right. This is what it means to be a veteran. The memory, whether happy or painful, will be permanently stuck with them for the rest of their lives. Many people would just say it is putting on a uniform and carrying a gun against an enemy, but it is so much more than that. A soldier gets to go home, but others will not be so lucky. The veterans did not ask for this one day of the year, but they surely deserve it.
