Honoring Those Who Served
The United States, since its birth in 1776, has fought in dozens of major wars and been militarily involved in hundreds of others with every generation witnessing combat in one form or another. Tens of millions of Americans have unselfishly suited up for the armed forces, including 31 US Presidents. Over 1 million Americans have died for our country.
Given veterans importance in U.S. history, it is not surprising that they have played a sacred role in the public’s consciousness. Routinely honored at sporting events and public gatherings and on patriotic holidays, most especially Veterans Day, observed each year on November 11th. The message surrounding veterans can be inspirational knowing these men and women are, and were, willing to sacrifice their lives for other Americans.
“Veterans know better than anyone else the price of freedom, for they’ve suffered the scars of war. We can offer them no better tribute than to protect what they have won for us.” Ronald Reagan
