A Grateful Nation

"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."
George Washington

Today, a grateful nation remembers and thanks you.

  1. We call it Remembrance Day. So many fine young men and women, sent too early to their graves, so that the armies of darkness would not cover the earth. We thank them, eternally, for their ultimate sacrifice.

  5. Veteran's Day was different for me this year. My father is a veteran and for the first time...he is here with me. I let him know how much his service to our country was appreciated and how much I love him and am thankful he survived Vietnam...he was only 20!
