Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day!  Yesterday was Veterans Day -on November 11.  And, today is the holiday.

I want to say thank you to the men and women who are veterans and their families!  The sacrifices that you have made are amazingly generous!  I so appreciate you and your commitment to the United States of America.

Here are some words of one of my favorite songs by Lee Greenwood:

  • I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free
  • And I won’t forget the men who died who gave that right to me
  • And I’ll gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
  • Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
  • God Bless the USA.

Those words are in a nutshell what these brave men and women have done for us!  You rock.

A few quotes on Veterans:

  • “In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.” — José Narosky
  • This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.”  ~Elmer Davis
