It has been often said that without our veterans, Americans would be speaking Russian, German, Japanese, or perhaps Arabic. Regardless of which view of alternative history you take, we do know that without our veterans the United States of America would not be the USA.
Not all veterans have seen war, but a common bond that they share is an oath in which they expressed their willingness to die defending this nation.
When you ask young men and women to endure great hardships, drastically change their lifestyles and possibly give their lives for you – the words “thank you,” seem woefully insufficient. Simply put, we owe them a debt that can never be re-paid.
To our brothers and sisters in the band (past and present) who have served, to all of our family, friends and co-workers who serve(d) and our brother Ryan who is serving today – we are forever grateful.
