Happy Veteran's Day!


With malice towards none;
With charity for all;
With firmness in the right,
As God gives us to see the right,
Let us strive on to finish
The work we are in;
To bind up the nation's wounds;
To care for him who shall have
Borne the battle,
And for his widow,
And his orphan -
To do all which may achieve and
Cherish a just and lasting peace
Among ourselves,
And with all nations.
~ President Abraham Lincoln
From his second Inaugural Address
March 4, 1865

Pat,
Thanks for the wonderful tribute to our Veterans, my Dad is a retired Navy man. He was always involved in the VFW, American Legion, putting flags on soldiers graves on Memorial Day--a very patriotic man.
