Pacifier

He may have never fired a shot in battle.

But a nation slept peacefully last night because he grabbed a rifle and stood his post.

She may have been criticized for serving an unpopular cause or occupying a non-traditional role.

But thousands of voices are free to cry out – even in criticism – because she does her duty.

He walks with titanium legs so his sons and daughters can walk terror-free.

He lives with memories no human should carry in order to cradle a free civilization.

You live…

You work…

You vote…

You dream…

Because a veteran made peace for you.
