"As we express gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
- John F. Kennedy
Our nation’s veterans and their sacrifices are a refreshing reminder of what unity, courage, love of country, and patriotism is.
Today, Veterans Day, we honor those who fight/fought for every American’s rights, even those they disagree with.
They sacrifice everything so we can vote, worship freely, disagree with one another, and have other freedoms no other country in history has had.
My Dad, Kevin Starrett - US Air Force
These courageous men and women deserve the very best. They deserve a smooth reintegration into civilian life, resources they can rely on, a life-giving community, and purpose.
We love this country and what it produces, but no car, innovation, or new technology will compare to the kind of people it has produced.
My Grandfather, Dan C. "Skip" Starrett - US Navy, Korean War
Those people who fight, serve, and give of themselves for no benefit of their own are the reason America is the great country it is today.
From one military family to another - the red, white, and blue running thru our veins creates a bond unlike any other. Together we continue to push forward through the good and the bad, the unknown and the sad.
My husband's Grandfather, David Schecter - US Army, WWII Paratrooper
Thank you, today and every day, to those, past and present, who bravely defend what we hold dear. You are an example to us all.
