Happy Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran’s Day! 

 Thank you to all the brave men and women who have served and are serving our country.  Thank you for risking your lives so that we may enjoy freedom here at home.  Your sacrifices and commitment do not go unnoticed and are very much appreciated.  I am honored to be the wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, and granddaugther to veterans.

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

"Better than honor and glory, and history's iron pen,

Was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men."
-Richard Watson Gilder

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.  - Joseph Campbell

Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die. - G.K. Chesterton

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. -Elmer Davis

Please take time today to honor a Veteran...just a simple "thank you for your service" can mean so much.
