Honor

veteran's day

No matter what your views on war, someone’s Father, Mother or child has put or is putting their life at risk for this country, for you, for me, for our families. Today, we honor those that serve and have served.

Former Georgia Senator and Governor Zell Miller :

“For 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.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes:

Lord, bid war’s trumpet cease;
Fold the whole earth in peace.

  4. thank you very much for your acknowledgment of our troops Dave. Too many of us fail to recognize the importance of the work that they do. From a personal standpoint, I can tell you the long months away from family and living in the harsh conditions are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what are soldiers face. Although people may not agree on the politics of the wars we fight, the soldier must go anyway whether he agrees or not.he does this for his family his country and his honor because someone must.

  8. Yes. Honor to all those who serve and protect our cherished freedoms. The ones who have fallen, those who stand tall and those who suffer in any way from the perils of battle. Humbled today.
