How blessed we are to live in a nation where brave men and women are willing to put their lives on the line to protect our freedom! Words are not big enough to convey how fortunate we are. We salute you, valiant veterans.

“I love America for her great and brawny strength. I love her for her generous heart. I love her for her tremendous spiritual strengths. She is unique among the nations of the earth – in her discovery, in her birth as a nation, in the amalgamation of the races that have come to her shores, in the strength of her government, in the goodness of her people.”
“God bless America, for she is His creation.” – Gordon B. Hinckley
