Continuing to Support Our Troops Eleven Years Later

The support for our troops should be all year around every year as long as we are Americans. The troops serve and protect our freedom everyday all year round as they put their lives on the line. There are times in which we further recognize our troops in times of war and other conflicts that may happen. The event of 9/11 was a time in which we as American citizens gave plenty of support to our troops. The THERAPY-IV crew within the Haulover Marina would like to remind us that the troops should be continuously supported.

The THERAPY-IV crews hold an abundance of patriotism as they actively support the troops whether the country is going through war or not. It is easy to only support the troops when their service is brought to one’s attention. The United State military does not only go to war when needed as they perform other tasks. The country is protected by the troops constantly preventing future conflicts around the world. The military’s job to be proactive and stop future conflicts is what has lead to the many years of peace that American has experience. America has been fortunate to experience a mass amount of year’s peace, especially within the country. There are battles, conflicts and potential wars that most of us as American citizens are not aware of. Those within the Haulover Marina along with other resorts, business, school, and households continue to show their support for our troops.

The event of 9/11 caused uproar in the country as we united as one for a single cause. This event had us appreciate and support our soldiers further than we have in years previous. Eleven years later those of the THERAPY-IV encourage us to continue our support for the troops the serve and protect us to this day.

What We Remember Today

What we remember today differs from what we remembered eleven years ago. The details of the event and aftermath are not as clear today as they were over a decade ago today. We still understand the message and know that the tragedy was a major event in all of our lives as Americans. Today the THERAPY-IV crew like all of us remember how much of a tragedy the event was especially for those living in New York. We mainly remember that as a country we united under one cause and that was for the lives of those involved with the tragedy.

Today people gathered at the Haulover Marina will take an extra moment in remembrance to those involved with 9/11. We as a country will take a moment out of our daily routine lives to remember and appreciate the loved ones in our lives. We will also take the time to appreciate those who protect our country including those who work within the country that protect that. The firefighters and police officers that risk their lives everyday to protect us are further appreciated. The risk factor that these professionals partake in is taken for granted at times. Today we are appreciative for the freedoms that we as Americans are given. Families and business across the country will continue with their daily lives today as they also remember the significance of this day. Some of those who will be gathered at the Haulover Marina will be further reminded on the significance of this day.

We remember that today eleven years ago a tragedy united the country as a whole and created a sense of appreciation. A sense of patriotism was created for Americans across the entire country, regardless of region. The THERAPY-IV crew reminds us to take the time and remember today as a day in which the country united as one.
