To Those Who Serve

by on Nov.11, 2011, under Misc.

Please take time today to celebrate the sacrifices made by our Veterans, in both war and peace. Originally, Veteran’s Day was Armistace Day, which celebrated the end of WWI. Back then, the world thought that war would never again occur on such a scale. Since then, American soldiers have fought bravely in several conflicts.

Today isn’t only a time to remember the past Veterans, but also those who are currently members of our Armed Forces. Never forget that:

It is the Soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the Soldier,
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.

Father Dennis Edward O’Brian, USMC (often incorrectly attributed to Charles M. Province)

Thank you so much to all Veterans – past, present and future – for your service, your dedication and your sacrifice. We are eternally in your debt.

Special thanks to all those airmen, soldiers, Marines and sailors that enjoy our programming. If y’all ever need anything, please do not hesitate to ask.
