It's been said that the price of freedom isn't free. So on Veterans Day we offer our thanks our military veterans and their families. Your sacrifice allows the rest of us to live in the freest, safest and greatest nation on earth.

From our World War II that we celebrate each year with the Big Sky Honor Flight from the greatest generation in history, to our Korean, Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans we thank you for your distinguished service to the United States of America. Today we thank you, remember you and your fallen comrades in arms.

For the rest of us who are safe and free because of their service, if you see a veteran or a current member of the military out and about, please shake his or her hand and thank them for their service.
