As Americans -

Recognizing and Appreciating OUR Servicemembers and Veterans - OUR First Responders - IS NEVER LIMITED to just one given day found on a calendar...

We must honor those who have served our country and given their lives so that we may stand and live in freedom.

We need to be constantly reminded of our gift of freedom and of those who gave all to make sure future generations continue to know life in a free, democratic society.
