This year, Honor Vets of the Past and Help vets of the Present
We can’t improve on these words or pictures…
"Without heroes, we are all plain people, and don't know how far we can go." - Bernard Malamud
"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." - Abraham Lincoln
"Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul." - Michel de Montaigne
"In war, there are no unwounded soldiers." - José Narosky
"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." - President George Washington
“It’s about how we treat our veterans every single day of the year. It’s about making sure they have the care they need and the benefits that they’ve earned when they come home. It’s about serving all of you as well as you’ve served the United States of America.” – Barack Obama
"We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause."
- Ronald Reagan
To find out what you can do to support American Veterans, visit these organizations:
Wounded Warriors - "provides free programs and services to address the needs of wounded warriors and fill gaps in government care...now serving tens of thousands."
The USO - "has stood by our troops through every step of their service...from the day of their deployment through the process of rehabilitation from an operation or invisible wounds, all the way through to reintegration, we're there for soldiers and their families."
The Fisher House Foundation - "a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment."
Team Rubicon - "providing disaster relief to those affected by natural disasters...by pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions."
We were not sure if we wanted to discuss our products today. However, since we do have many vets and service members as customers, we decided to at least remind all of you that we happily offer a 10% Veteran's Discount with ID. It’s a small gesture, perhaps, but we very much appreciate your service. We are honored that you choose to use our products to show your pride. Thank You.
