Our Everyday Heroes

Growing up, we all had our favorite super hero or idol that we looked up to and always wanted to aspire to be. I always wanted to be just like the men and women serving our country; these men and women were my super heroes.

Every year on November 11, the anniversary of the formal ending of World War I, we celebrate these heroes that gave up their “normal” lives to defend our beautiful country. These men and women have served in one or more of our five branches of government; Marine Corps, Navy, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Unlike Memorial Day, on this day we honor those living and those who have passed away.

But why do we have to limit honoring these men and women to just one day? We should honor our servicemen every day, not just a couple days out of the year. They are willing to give up not only a comfortable lifestyle, but their lives. They wake up every morning and go to work, not knowing if they will see their families another time. They put their lives on hold so we can continue to live ours as normally as possible.

So, on behalf of The Pretty Patriot, I would like to thank the men and women, those living and those who have passed away, for giving their all. For putting the American people before themselves, for giving us security knowing we are protected from world threats, and for being our everyday heroes.

“The thing we all had in common wasn’t muscle; it was the will to do whatever it takes.”
