Thank You Veterans

Thank You Veterans

Each year we set aside a day to honor the men and women who have served our country in uniform. It is an opportunity for us to extend our gratitude for the sacrifices made by those who serve in many places throughout the world, often in less-than-comfortable circumstances, in order to protect our way of life.

While levels of freedom around the world are on the decline, we can thank our soldiers and veterans for safeguarding us and protecting our liberties – for without those who fight for what is good and right, only those who fight for power would remain.

Richard Watson Gilder, an American poet, declared that, “Better than honor and glory and History’s iron pen, was the thought of duty done and love of his fellow-men.” Those are the military men and women we have known, and to each of you we express our deepest appreciation and thanks on this Veterans Day.
