Remember All Those Who Served This Veterans Day
The VFW calls on Americans to remember our veterans and honor them for their service and sacrifice
November 08, 2013
Nov. 11, Americans celebrate our veterans by honoring them for their brave
service to our nation.
courageous men and women who have donned the uniform did not do it for the
praise or the accolades. They did it because they answered the call to duty,
and they selflessly and heroically served our nation. There is no doubt that they
are truly America’s finest.
America that we all know is a product of their service and dedication. For
generations, they have kept our nation free and defended democracy from tyranny
and oppression. They’ve protected freedom-loving people all around the world.
And we must also remember the thousands
who are deployed all over the world today, 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.
The VFW understands freedom is not free,
and it is our veterans and their loved ones who pay the price. As we honor them
on Veterans Day, and each day after, we should reflect on the sacrifices
they’ve made to ensure America’s victories, as well as the many liberties we
enjoy as a result of their stalwart sense of duty.
America’s founding, it has been those who have worn the uniform–those who have
tenaciously defended American values–who we will be forever grateful to:
America's proud Airmen, Coastguardsmen, Marines, Sailors and Soldiers.
