Veterans Day we honor every man and woman who has proudly worn the uniform of
the United States military. We celebrate all those who have bravely defended
our nation from the forces of evil and tyranny, and helped free countries
around the world from the grips of despair.
This Veterans Day weekend, patriotic
Americans will gather to remember the countless sacrifices our veterans have
made. As we honor them, we should also reflect on the price paid for our
victories, as well as the many liberties we enjoy today because of the
selflessness of our nation’s heroes.
Our veterans cherish the values and
virtues upon which our nation was founded, and generations have bravely
answered the call to preserve them. We owe them so much, and we must not forget
the thousands who are deployed all over the world defending our freedoms at
this very moment. We pray for their safe return, and the VFW stands ready to
support their families while they are away.
