Veterans Day 2012

Today I honor all the men and women who served and still serve this great country. Yes, it is a great country and if you don’t think so, you can always exercise the great freedom you have here and LEAVE.  If you see a soldier today, don’t forget to thank him or her because they do what we don’t have the grit to do.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” -Elmer Davis

“But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye.” -Thomas Dunn English

“I think there is one higher office than president, and I would call that patriot.” -Gary Hart

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy

“Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul.” -Michel de Montaigne

“In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.” -Jose Narosky

“We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.” -Cynthia Ozick

“The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war.” -Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit
