For my husband who is a Veteran.
For all of our friends that are either active or retired military.
For all those men and women we don't know that are active or retired military.
For all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in a free country!
Happy Veteran's Day!
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.”
“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”
“For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag.”
~Former Georgia Senator and Governor Zell Miller
“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day (now know as Veteran's Day) will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us, and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”
