Honoring Our Veterans

Last week we all had the opportunity to express our freedom of democracy by voting for the candidates of our choice.

This Wednesday we must all take time out to honor and pay tribute to all those brave men and woman who fought long hard to give us that democracy. If it were not for our veterans, life as we know it in the United States would be far different.

Veteran’s Day began as Armistice Day a celebration of the termination of World War I on November 11, 1918. President Eisenhower renamed it Veterans Day in 1954 realizing those who brought the end to war were more deserving of accolades than the end of war itself.

Sullivan County does everything feasible to assist these brave men and women who are our veterans.

The Sullivan County Veterans Service Agency provides entitlement information and advocacy assistance to military personnel, to military veterans, and their dependents in matters related to federal, state and local benefits. They are not part of the Department of Veterans Affairs, but instead are a county agency dedicated to serving veterans and their families. They are knowledgeable on the huge array of programs, benefits and services that are available to all veterans.

In Sullivan County there are many events that will pay tribute to our veterans

    May our Lord bless all of our men and women that have served and are in service. We are facing a great enemy from the past at this time in our lives. I pray to our Lord so that HE will give our currant military the strength to triumph over these evil dogs that expose themselves to us now. All of the hidden ones of these evil dogs will be terminated shortly. It will occur as it is written. It will get worst for us all, certain bad world events must occur first. But, have no fear of what’s to come at us by these evil dogs. Stay fast to our Lord and HIS word. Lets all pray that our Lord will continue to bless our Judeo/Christian nation, brothers and sisters abroad in HIS, service.
