Let’s Appreciate and Remember Our Veterans; on Veterans Day and Everyday

Here are a few quotes to mark this occasion:

“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.”
 Congressman Dan Lipinski

“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.” Billy Graham

“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” Maya Angelou
