From Armistice to Veterans, as one veteran to all, I salute you all!! We should honor ourselves’ for keeping our flag free and secure, we are the courageous men and women who fought and died for the idealism of liberty and freedom for all.
I thank you veterans for not being selfish with your lives and believing in our nation’s freedom.
And, for those in the tomb of the unknowns, thank you for the historical significance you’ve made. We will celebrate and honor our unknown American veterans of all wars and for their patriotism, love of nation, and sacrifice you and your families have made for the common good of our nation.
May we laugh, cry and remember on this day, November 11th, our experiences and memories.
It was the veteran, who saluted our flag, who served under our flag and who will be remembered under our nation’s flag.
Richard (USN/USA)- This veteran may fade, yet this veteran will not run.
-Forever a Veteran.
I would like to say thank you to all our Veterans past present and future. I believe we should thank you every day of the year not just on certain days. My Dad and his brothers are all Veterans. I say a prayer everyday for you and your family. May God bless you and keep you safe always. Thank you again and God Bless America. Beverly ‘
I served during the late 1970’s in the U.S.A.F. I will never forget the people who I would have laid down my life for and the honor of wearing my country’s uniform. God Bless all my fellow Veterans: past, present and future and God Bless our troops and families serving today. May God protect and watch over the United States of America, the greatest country in the world. ‘ Stefana
Us Veteran’s have a lot in common, we love our country (U.S.A.). I support all Veterans and especially the one’s that are serving in harms way today in Iraq and Afghanistan. We may not all agree that we should have troops there, but we must support the one’s that were sent there to fight for us to help defend freedom and Democracy. May God Bless America and the men and women in uniform. James
I for one, take alot of pride in All Veteran Holidays! Veterans Day is Special to me because it brings All branches of the Military together! I wish that all the people in this Country, would wake-up and smell the coffee!! Unless a family has a family member in the Military, they don’t even have a clue about the sacrifices Soldiers make for the Freedom of this great Country!!I still see the blood on my hands, the screams in my head, the total devastation and personal loss!! It’s like a projector going off in my head each and every night! No one enjoys seeing their best friend, being tossed through the air like an open can of tomato paste!! For those who fought for it, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know!! Army SFC J.C.
Veterans Day to me is one of the most significant and memorable days of the year. It causes me to pause and reflect on my own service time, my buddies whom I miss all the time, my family’s collection of Veterans, and thanking all those who have ever served to protect this country. Veterans day this year is even more significant when we have young men and women on the line fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and other remote regions of the world. An entire new generation of Veterans is coming up through the hard fought wages of war. Veterans day to them will mean as much if not more than it does to us… for their world, their time, their wars are truly global in nature. God bless them all. God bless all who have served and shall serve in the future. ‘ David V.
