Sometimes we get caught up in family, cook outs, the day off work; that we forget about what today really means. A day to remember, cherish, and thank our service men and women who allow us to have and keep these freedoms. Now, since I have not served, I want to share some quotes of those who have.
A Veteran Is Someone Who, at one point, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America’ for an amount of ‘up to and including their life.’ That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.
-Lt.Col George Goodson, USMC (Ret)
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
-George S. Patton
I don’t have to tell you how fragile this precious gift of freedom is. Every time we hear, watch, or read the news, we are reminded that liberty is a rare commodity in this world.
Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.
