A Tribute To Our Veterans
To my Great-Great Grand Father who fought to preserve the Union and gave his life at the Battle of Gettysburg – we are forever in your debt.
To my Grand Father, the World War I soldier, who fought in the Second Battle of Marne and the Battle of Meuse-Argonne that brought victory to the Allies – your sacrifices and love for our country will never be forgotten.
To our Fathers, a pilot, two soldiers and a sailor, who bravely fought the land, sea and air battles of World War II – words can never truly express our gratitude for protecting our country, preserving our freedom and making possible all that we have today.
To our Brothers who served in the Army and the Marines, you answered your country’s call to duty with honor in Vietnam. You quietly put away your Purple Hearts and Silver Star, but your valor and devotion to our country will always be remembered with our deepest thanks and greatest admiration.
To our Sons, serving in the Army, Navy and the Marines - you fought them over there to protect us here and freed 50 million people in Afghanistan and Iraq. We are so proud of your accomplishments and your commitment to our country. We are so very humbled by your selflessness - you are our heroes.
To our Uncles, Cousins and In-Laws who have served in the U.S. Military here at home and around the world, during peace and conflict - World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Panama, the Persian Gulf, Haiti, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq - thank you your patriotism and all that you have done for peace.
To every man and woman who wears and has worn the uniform of the U.S. Military – thank you for our freedom, for defending us and for making the world a better place.
