A VETERAN - whether active duty, discharged, retired, reserve or passed away - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount of up to, and including their life. Thank You for your Service to our Country. May God Bless You.

It's the Soldier who has given us the freedom of the press... It's the Soldier, who has given us the freedom of speech... It's the Soldier that ensures our right to Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness... It's the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag & whose coffin is draped by the flag.

I am bound to them, though I cannot see their eyes or hear their voices. I honor their history. I cherish their lives. I will tell their story. I will remember them.
