An Appreciation ~ Veteran’s Day

In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When  his  succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. ~Mark Twain, Notebook, 1935

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~ Elmer Davis

Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as best he can, the same cause. ~ Abraham Lincoln

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. ~ Patrick Henry

We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were preprared 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
