It Is The Veteran
May 28, 2012
It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, Who has given us the right to vote.
On this Memorial Day, our nation does honor those Veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice in their service to our country.
Memorial Day was first observed in 1868 as Decoration Day, when the families of Civil War victims honored their war dead by decorating their graves. Over time, the holiday became known as Memorial Day.
On this Memorial Day, I also urge you to take this opportunity to honor all of our service members, veterans, and their families for their service and sacrifices for our freedoms and our nation… America.
Enjoy, Honor and Celebrate,
Carlos, Donna and Austin
