Veterans—Why Children Still Need You

by Sally Matheny    

Surely they served with our children in mind.
Those who have served in our Armed Forces, during times of peace and times of war, have surely done so with our children in mind.

From the Revolutionary War to the latest war on terrorism, our service members have fought to protect our freedom and way of life.    
Many service members hoped their service would provide a better life for the next generation.

Not only do I want to express my appreciation, I also want to remind veterans why our children still need you.
