VETERAN’S DAY HOLIDAY
Remember Friday is a Club, School and Tribal and National Holiday set aside to honor and remember our Veterans. Chances are each of us knows someone, or is related to, or is a veteran. Please take a moment to thank them and let them know how much they mean to us and our country. A few quotes regarding our freedom:
We make war that we may live in peace ~ Aristotle
It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you ~ Unknown
There was never a good war or a bad peace ~ Benjamin Franklin
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave ~Elmer Davis
Freedom is never free ~ Author Unknown
It is not only the living who are killed in war ~ Isaac Asimov
History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap ~ Ronald Reagan
In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. ~ Mark Twain
