Lets Honor the Veterans!

We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause.”

…President Ronald Reagan, Remarks on Veterans Day, 1988 at Vietnam Veterans Memorial

This week, America observes Veterans Day. We honor our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Guardsmen and Marines who’ve undertaken the responsibility of protecting our nation. Millions of veterans – our friends and neighbors – deserve our recognition this week for having fought during times of conflict; for standing post and keeping the peace; or for training and inspiring young Americans to do the same.

To all of our Veterans and our active duty Armed Forces, we salute you. Your service is admired and appreciated. God bless you!
