Throughout Anoka County, communities said “thank you” this Veterans Day to those who have served their country.
U.S. Army Command Sgt. Maj. David Eustice urges Anoka High School students and staff to thank veterans for their service – and not just on Veterans Day. “We have freedom because people are willing to fight, willing to give up everything so that you can be free,” he said. “You’ll be free next Monday and the Monday after that and all the days after that. You don’t have to save your thanks for Veterans Day. Thanks a veteran next Monday. Thank a veteran the week after that. There’s nothing wrong with being proud to live in the free-est country in the world.” Photo by Sue Austreng
