Veterans Day is intended to thank living veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served - not only those who died - have sacrificed and done their duty. John A. Biedrzycki, Jr., Commander in Chief of the National VFW November, 2015.
Memorial Day is a sacred time to honor all uniformed personnel killed in the line of duty. John A. Biedrzycki, Jr., Commander in Chief of the National VFW November, 2015.
No country has shed more of its own blood for the freedom of other people than America. Page 297 in the book Fearless by Eric Blehm
