Hi Everyone!  An appreciation of Veterans Day -- a day to remember and
salute and thank our Heroes.
                                                                                                                                                              
~Jane
                                                             ~~~~~~~~~~~  

"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

"While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans,
Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our fellow
countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedom."
                                                                                               ~Randy Neugebauer

"Duty, Honor, Country.  Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what
you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be."                 
                                                                                                  ~Douglas MacArthur

"There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty that makes human nature rise above
itself, in acts of bravery and heroism."                                 ~Alexander Hamilton

"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."
                                                                                                  ~Douglas MacArthur

"On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us
renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans
and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free."
                                                                                                         ~Dan Lipinski

"How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our HEROES. and
SHE-ROES."                                                                               ~Maya Angelou

"In War, there are no unwounded soldiers."                                      ~Narosky   

"Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul."
                                                                                         ~Michel de Montaigne

"Lord, bid war's trumpet cease;  Fold the whole Earth in Peace."
                                                                                         ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Those of us who have seen the movie,  SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, with Tom
Hanks will remember the last scene in the cemetery of hundreds of white
crosses as the now older (former Private) Ryan delivers the lines:

          "My Family is with me.  They wanted to come to be with me.
            Every day I think of what you said to me that day on the bridge:
            to live my life the best I could.  I hope that was enough;  I hope
            that at least,  in your eyes, I have earned all that you have done
            for me."
            (the now elderly Ryan turns to his wife and says):
            
     " Tell me I've led a good life.
        Tell me I'm a good man."      
                                                          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My father was in the Army and served in the Pacific in WWII. My wife's father was in the Navy and also served in the Pacific.

They are gone not. We still cherish their memories and their service for our freedom and out sovereign nation.

Jane as you know I spent time at USMA and General MacArthur represents the School in more ways than one, but that quote is recited by every cadet and every graduate.... on a side note I was there when Gregory Peck was filming the movie and if you see the movie you could see me siting in the Dining Hall when he gives his speech about returning to West Point....Endre

Good morning Jane. Amazingly close on the choice today but my choice is:

"There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty that makes human nature rise above
itself, in acts of bravery and heroism."                                 ~Alexander Hamilton

Hello Jane - each quote is noteworthy but this one resonates with me as I read your post the day after Veteran's Day:

"While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans,
Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our fellow
countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedom."
                                                                                               ~Randy Neugebauer
