Veterans Day 2012

One of George Washington’s first decisions after receiving word of the Continental Congress’s approval of the Declaration of Independence was to order it read to the Continental Army. Then and now, we must remember that the price paid for a free republic called the United States of America is paid with a currency called blood and sacrifice. It is the only way a nation can uphold the pledge of lives, fortunes, and sacred honor promised so we can remain the people we are. To my children, father and father-in-law, and many friends who served this country no matter how high the cost of liberty, I offer my thanks. Veterans Day is more than just another day off.
