Let us never forget… that we cannot rightfully celebrate the joy of our freedom… without remembering the great price paid for that freedom. To all our veterans…. we have a simple yet heartfelt message -- thank you – Thank you for your unwavering service in peacetime and war, here in this nation… and throughout the world.
