Risking their lives to protect our freedom


“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.”  Unknown


“The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding go out to meet it.”  Thucydides


“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation” George Washington
