Freedom is never free.
In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
We, too, born to freedom, and believing in freedom, are willing to fight to maintain freedom. We, and all others who believe as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die
To be free and to have a choice and a voice means that veterans have been quieted through death.
Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don’t have that problem.
I regret that I have but one life to give for my country
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy
