Day 315 - Veterans

Thank you to the Veterans who serve to protect my freedom today, and thank you to all of those who have fallen before you and paid the ultimate price. The pictures below are from a previous post, wherein I volunteered to help decorate our Veteran's graves for Memorial Day. Such a small gesture, to pay back such a huge sacrifice. Be sure to thank a Veteran today.

The ending of World War I, and the initiation of Veterans Day, prompted Woodrow Wilson to say...

"To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."
