WLOX Editorial: Honor those who have served

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Numerous Veterans Day events are happening on the coast to celebrate our military veterans. There are parades and ceremonies that are fitting tributes to those who have served. That group is some 40,000 strong in South Mississippi, part of 21 million across the country.

We hope you will pay tribute and honor those who have served. Without an armed and ready military, our country could not exist. Others in this world would absolutely come and take away our freedom, our land, and all we hold dear.

To our veterans, we thank you for your patriotism, your sacrifice and your service.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
