To Americans, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month has special meaning as a time to acknowledge and honor the men and women who have served their country in the military. Government employees and many others benefit from a special holiday – Veteran’s Day – a formal recognition of the sacrifices and service of their fellow citizens who have sacrificed on behalf of the common good. Though not all countries have a similar tradition to recognize their veterans, the moral duty to be grateful to the men and women who work for and sometimes fight for their country’s flag and principles is just as great. Wherever you are, please honor your obligation to experience and express your gratitude.
