Veterans Day Message

Veterans Day Message

Today is a day this country gives our heartfelt thanks to the men and women that have served to defend our freedom and uphold democracy at home and across the globe. No matter the conflict, whatever branch of service, and whatever rank they achieved… they all signed their name, committed themselves to this country, and put their lives on the line. Every American is a beneficiary of our veterans’ vigilance, valor, and sacrifice.

 

In March of 1864, after almost 3 years of devastating fighting in the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln reminded the nation of the sacrifices veterans make for us all … “All that a man hath he will give his life for his country … the soldier puts his life at stake, and often yields it up in his country’s cause. The highest merit, then, is due the soldier.”

On Veterans Day in 1988, Ronald Reagan said …”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. . . 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.”

 

Please join us in offering our heartfelt thanks as we remember and honor these “champions of a noble cause”, and we pledge to never forget the sacrifices they made for us in their service to our country.

 

Thank You.
