VETERANS DAY 2015 … Thank You for Your Service to Protect Our Liberty and Freedom … God Bless You All

VETERANS DAY 2015 – We owe our veterans a debt we can never repay and for that all we can do is offer our thanks and gratitude.


Today we offer our thanks to all who have served and continue to serve in our military who protect our liberties and our freedom. We know all too well that Freedom is not free and it takes a special individual who is called to service. We thank the brave men and woman of our Armed Forces who have fought to protect our ways of life. They are our true heroes. So many of our World War II veterans pass away ever day, the American heroes who like those that followed them into military service have made us so proud. Please take the time today to than a Veteran for their service.

Thank you for your Service to Honor, Duty and Country.  You have our never ending thanks for the sacrifices that you and your families have made so that we might be safe.  Thank you and God Bless!

American Soldier – Toby Keith

And I will always do my duty, no matter what the price.
I’ve counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice.
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you,
But if dying’s asked of me,
I’ll bear that cross with honor,
‘Cause freedom don’t come free.

Quotes and sayings: Saying thank you to the military for their service.

“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.” – Abraham Lincoln

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.” – George Washington

“This year’s Veterans Day celebration is especially significant as our country remains committed to fighting the War on Terror and as brave men and women are heroically defending our homeland.” – John Doolittle

“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don’t have that problem.” – Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan – Veterans Day Prayer


A Veterans Day Prayer from President Ronald Reagan

Since our current president was in China and too busy to lay a wreath at The Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetary, maybe a prayer from a true Commander in Chief is required. The following is a prayer from President Ronald Wilson Reagan.

November 11, 2013 – VETERANS DAY … Thank You for Your Service to Protect Our Liberty and Freedom … God Bless You All

VETERANS DAY  2013: To all those who have served … THANK YOU TO OUR AMERICAN HEROES!!!

Please remember that Freedom is never Free, not just today, but everyday. However, today we send a special thank you to the brave men and women who have protected our freedoms, liberty and way of life.  THANK YOU!!! We can never say or do enough to show our appreciation for the sacrifice that our Veterans, Our Heroes, have done in their duty to the United States. Please always take time to thank a soldier, I am sure they would appreciate it.


So often we take the past and present service of our brave men and women of the Armed Forces for granted. They do such a tremendous job keeping us safe that is sometimes forgot.  Know, that these individuals fight for peace, fight for freedom and fight for the very liberties that you and I enjoy every day.

Doolittle Raiders’ final toast.

80 heroes risked their lives during WWII on a bombing mission on Japan who became known as  Doolittle Raiders. Just five years ago there were 11 surviving members of Doolittle’s Raider, now sadly there are only 4.

Three of the four surviving Raiders attended the toast Saturday at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Their late commander, Lt. Gen. James “Jimmy” Doolittle, started the tradition but they decided this autumn’s ceremony would be their last.

“May they rest in peace,” Lt. Col. Richard Cole, 98, said before he and fellow Raiders — Lt. Col. Edward Saylor, 93, and Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, 92 — sipped cognac from specially engraved silver goblets. The 1896 cognac was saved for the occasion after being passed down from Doolittle.

Hundreds invited to the ceremony, including family members of deceased Raiders, watched as the three each called out “here” as a historian read the names of all 80 of the original airmen.

The fourth surviving Raider, Lt. Col. Robert Hite, 93, couldn’t travel to Ohio because of health problems.

But son Wallace Hite said his father, wearing a Raiders blazer and other traditional garb for their reunions, made his own salute to the fallen with a silver goblet of wine at home in Nashville, Tenn., earlier in the week.

God Bless the men and woman of our Armed Forces both past and present.

UPDATE I: Sadly our veterans of WWII, Our Greatest Generation are dying at a rate of more than 600 a day. On a personal note, all of my 6 uncles who served during WWII have passed, including my Uncle Red who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Which is what makes me sick to my stomach that today we will see Barack Obama laying a wreath of the Tombs of the Unknown’s and make some speech all the while just a month ago he maliciously, purposely and vindictively made sure that an open air memorial like the WWII memorial was closed and barricaded so that Honor Flight vets could not get to it.  Instead, the veterans had to force their way past Obama’s barricades and patriots had to take matters into their own hands VIDEO).
