G.K. Chesterton said, “Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.” Men and women who choose to serve their countries have accepted the ultimate reality: every day when they go to work, they know that they might not come home. Ever.
Military personnel sacrifice so much so that they can serve their countries. They may suffer physical injury or emotional trauma. Time apart can cause relationships to suffer, and sometimes, crumble.
And then there are the everyday sacrifices that active duty military (and their families and friends) make: they aren’t home to see their baby’s first steps, dance at their parents’ 25th anniversary, or give the toast at their childhood friend’s wedding.
Yet, these brave men and women shoulder their rifles (both literally and figuratively) and fight for what they believe in – freedom.
Please say thank you to our veterans. Any time you see a soldier in uniform or a veteran, tell them you are grateful for their service and sacrifice. I do.
As an additional way of showing my appreciation, I offer veterans and active duty military discounts on all of my legal services. The savings vary based on the type of case, so for more details, please contact me at (732) 444-6406 or through my Contact page.
