On this day, we give thanks for all those who have worn and who currently wear the uniform of America's Armed Forces. Veterans Day is a time we set aside to remember, to honor and to pay respect to our nation's uniformed Patriots — American Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Coastguardsmen — who have, and who continue to stand in harm's way that we might live in peace.
As President Bush said in his radio address yesterday, "On this Veterans Day, I urge every American to take time to thank one of our Nation's 24 million veterans. They come from different generations and different backgrounds. But they are united by a commitment to honor, duty, and love of country that has kept America free. They continue to strengthen and inspire our Nation. And we will never forget what we owe them." We echo his sentiments 100%!
We encourage you to watch this touching tribute; we couldn't find a way to embed it into our blog, but it is well worth viewing!
To all of America's veterans - thank you, may God bless you, and we salute you!
