This Veteran’s Day, we honor those who have so bravely served this country.
America is founded on the principle of freedom, justice, and liberty for all. Our nation’s soldiers serve every day to protect our country and its ideals. United States President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 11, 1919 by saying, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”
On Veteran’s Day, take a sacred moment to remember the those who sacrifice their lives every moment to achieve peace and democracy.
We honor and say thank you to two of our sisters who served.
