Thank you to all the Veterans


And I am proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who served
to give that right to me.
Adapted from the "Song God Bless The USA" by Lee Greenwood




Hello Evfurryone,

Pellie and I want to take this opportunity to thank all the Veterans, including our own dear Sir Knight, for doing their part to see that we remain a free nation.


Lincoln’s words are enshrined among the best of Veterans Day quotes. He said in the famous Gettysburg Address about the soldiers who died: “But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground.

“The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.”


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

Purrs, & Thanks,
Genghis

Hugs & Thank you
Penny
