Today’s quotes are to honor those who serve in our armed forces. It is also to remember our nation’s first responders and healthcare workers who have fought a different kind of war this year. A war against an unknown and unseeable enemy.
To all veterans, first responders, and medical personnel fighting the COVID-19 virus. Thank you for your service. This is your day. Your service will NEVER be forgotten.
Dave Gardner, ARMY, SFC, retired (1984 – 2005)
I offer neither pay, nor quarters, nor food; I offer only hunger, thirst, forced marches, battles and death. Let him who loves his country with his heart, and not merely with his lips, follow me.
The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.
The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment.
Honoring the sacrifices many have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy is the very foundation of Veterans Day.
Charles B. Rangel
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
George S. Patton
Until next time…
