In Honor of Our Military on Veteran’s Day

Thank you so much for your service and sacrifices to our military both present and past plus their families. I love and respect you. Shirley

“The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated [this ground], far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” ~ President Abraham Lincoln

“I saw your sons and your husbands, your brothers and your sweethearts. I saw how they worked, played, fought, and lived. I saw some of them die. I saw more courage, more good humor in the face of discomfort, more love in an era of hate, and more devotion to duty than could exist under tyranny.” ~ Bob Hope

“Whatever gains are secured it is loss the veteran remembers most keenly. Only a fool or a fraud sentimentalizes the merciless reality of war.” ~ Senator John McCain

“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” ~ Maya Angelou

“Homeless and at-risk veterans need more than just shelter. We must give them the tools to empower themselves and reclaim the self-worth and dignity which comes from occupying a place in the American dream. It is a dream they fought so hard to defend for the rest of us.” ~ Maria Cuomo Cole
