On Veterans Day 2011 we honor those who have served in the military and lived: thanks for putting your life on the line for all the things we hold dear.
Veterans Day 2011
“In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.”
“Do you know what a soldier is, young man?
He’s the chap who makes it possible for civilized folk to despise war.”
“Today is Veterans Day, the day we honor those who have served in the military and lived. Memorial Day is the day we honor those who died while serving in the military. While that seems like a big difference, the reality is that chance plays a huge role in which soldiers live and which soldiers die. So to all you veterans out there, thanks for the willingness to put your life on the line for all the things I hold dear.”
