Remembering our Veterans on Veterans Day

Tomorrow, November 11, let us remember the brave men and women that have served our country and who have given us the freedoms we love so very much. Let us always pray that these freedoms will continue in our country for generations to come.

Personally, I thank you for all you have done for my many family and friends. It has become a mission of mine to thank every veteran and the current military person I meet on the street or driving in the car. If you own a United State of America flag, proudly display it on your home today.

Below are eight inspirational quotes and a video titled Honor and Remember from Black Rifle Coffee Company –

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.”  – General George S. Patton

“Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.” – General Douglas MacArthur

“The U.S. Military is us. There is no truer representation of a country than the people that it sends into the field to fight for it. The people who wear our uniform and carry our rifles into combat are our kids, and our job is to support them, because they’re protecting us.” – Tom Clancy

“Honor to the solider, and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his county’s cause. Honor to him … who braves for the common good the storms of Heaven and the storms of battle.” – President Abraham Lincoln

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset telling our children and our children’s children what it was like in the United States where men were free.” – President Ronald Reagan

“In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all veterans, all veterans’ organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose.” – President Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form or a readiness to die.” – G.K. Chesterton

“Looking across this field, we see the scale of heroism and sacrifice. All who are buried here understood their duty. All stood to protect America. And all carried with them memories of a family that they hoped to keep safe by their sacrifice.”  – President George W. Bush

  1. As always, you hit a home run with this posting. My former husband ran away from home at 16 to join the Army and served until the end of the war in the Eastern Europe area. He has always said it was the best thing he ever did plus he learned to drive a tank!
