Whether you voted for President Obama, Mitt Romney or someone else, this much is clear: our veterans must never be forgotten.
The bulk of American forces may be gone from Iraq and leaving Afghanistan but recent events in Benghazi and elsewhere have made it crystal clear that Americans are only truly safe at home and around the world when our military is strong and fulling engaged.
Only when men and women in uniform make sacrifices and take risks are our freedoms truly protected. The right to vote that so many of us exercised last week may be guaranteed by our constitution but it is secured ultimately by our armed men and women. These men and women give up time with their family and risk their lives to stand between us and those who want to take our rights away. We must never forget that.
