It's hard to find words to thank our veterans like words don't seem quite enough for the gravity of what it means to be a veteran. You've risked your lives for your country and have lived to tell about it. I know I'm forever grateful and proud to have them in my family and I know I'm not alone.

This Veterans Day Thursday, November 11th, 2021 Habitat for Humanity knows the importance of inspiring people and is spreading the word about their latest build.
