Happy Veteran's Day

”Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
John 15-13

We thank from the bottom of our hearts all the brave soldiers who have laid down their lives for the cause of justice and freedom. Who have laid down their lives in sacrifice of their time, their skills, time away from their families, physical assaults and mental bruisings. And the ultimate sacrifice, their very lives. We cannot thank enough the men and women who have taken up the call of their country and their valiant efforts in doing their jobs.

Zell Miller http://miller.senate.gov/ said it well :

β€œFor it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest.It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag.”

But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for,Is their monument to-day, and for aye.~Thomas Dunn English

Freedom is never free. ~Author Unknown

Soldiers, we thank you !
May God Bless you and keep you.
