LEST ANYONE FORGET
“As we pay tribute to our veterans, we are mindful that no ceremony or parade can fully repay that debt. We remember that our obligations endure long after the battle ends, and we make it our mission to give them the respect and care they have earned. … Under the most demanding of circumstances and in the most dangerous corners of the Earth, America’s veterans have served with distinction. With courage, self-sacrifice, and devotion to our nation and to one another, they represent the American character at its best.”
— From President Obama’s official proclamation recognizing Veterans Day.
