On Veterans' Day

To all our sisters and brothers who served or are serving, we salute you one and all on this Veterans' Day.

Keep in mind:

"A Veteran - whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" to uphold and defend our Constitution, for an amount of "up to and including my life"."

That is honor, and there are far too many people in this country today who no longer understand that.

Thank you one and all for your service to this nation.

”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Obama Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln

"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
