To honor those who served...and are serving


It is the veteran, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the veteran, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the veteran, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.



It is the veteran, not the community organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the veteran, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the veteran, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.



Remember - only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

  2. Words of the Prince of Peace: "Be ye not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good."

    Does this not apply to soldier? Or does soldier do good? (You know, soldiers are SENT to kill, and be killed. Not to do good things...)

    Maybe this article could help:
