We salute The veteran!

Take A Mulligan

Monday, November 11, is Veteran's Day, a day to honor our military veterans for your service to our country. It is a day to salute our heroes

For the sacrifices each and every one made for our nation. The origin of Veterans Day can be traced back to World War I. The Armistice with Germany, which formally ended the war, went into effect at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 and should not to be confused with Memorial Day, which honors those who died while in military service. Veterans Day honors all American Veterans, living and dead. It takes tremendous courage for a soldier to risk it all to protect our country. The least we civilians can do is to offer thanks to these extraordinary men and women. In that respect, here are some inspirational and patriotic Veterans Day quotes to help us honor them...

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. - John F. Kennedy

Every day of the year we Americans should be thankful that we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that our deepest appreciation for these rights and ideals is to the Veteran of the Untied States.

And on Monday, November 11, we take this one day to "officially say THANK YOU." God bless the USA and God bless the Veteran.
