Thank You to Our Veterans


Every year, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, America pauses to honor our nation’s veterans. The date for Veterans Day is deliberate; it marks the armistice signed in 1918 for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I. It is a day to honor the veterans of all wars, but especially to honor those still living.

Sadly, the “war to end all wars,” as World War I was known, didn’t accomplish that goal, and our nation has continued to require the military service of men and women in every generation since then.

Today, we live in a world tormented by tension and conflict, an age rife with political instability and war. And yet here in this country we are free. For that we owe our gratitude to those who stepped forward, raised their hands, took an oath, and put their lives on the line in every generation in the life of our nation. The present generation of service men and women has endured more than a decade of war from the deserts of the Middle East to the mountains of Afghanistan. They have answered our nation’s call again and again, at home and abroad, tour after tour.

We at Bibles for America particularly hold dear the freedom we have to worship God, read the Bible, and spread His Word across this nation. We don’t take this freedom for granted.

And so we’d like to take this time to thank our veterans and their families. We pray for those who are struggling with the wounds of war and facing another kind of battle at home, this time to find work, adequate health care, and meaning in civilian life. We appreciate you. We have not forgotten you.

We hope our free study Bible and free Christian e-books would be a source of spiritual comfort, healing, and nourishment for you. If you are a veteran, we encourage you to share this post with other veterans you know.

May God bless our veterans and their families with His salvation and the full knowledge of the truth. From all of us at Bibles for America, thank you for your service.

We love hearing from you, so please share your thoughts and experiences related to the post (blog commenting guidelines).
