The brave members of our Armed Forces remind us that freedom is not free. They are truly the ones among us who stand up and protect us from threats. For Veteran’s Day, I wanted to honor them with these 10 Amazing Veteran’s Day Quotes:
“I saw your sons and your husbands, your brothers and your sweethearts. I saw how they worked, played, fought, and lived. I saw some of them die. I saw more courage, more good humor in the face of discomfort, more love in an era of hate, and more devotion to duty than could exist under tyranny.” – Bob Hope, 1944
“The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here (at Gettysburg), have consecrated [this ground], far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” – President Abraham Lincoln, 1863
“The unparalleled perseverance of the armies of the United States, through almost every possible suffering and discouragement for the space of eight long years, was little short of a standing miracle.” – (then-General) President George Washington, 1783
“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often s-stiffened.” – Billy Graham, 1964
“I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.” – Nathan Hale, 1776
“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” – Maya Angelou, 2010
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” – JFK, 1963
“Veterans know better than anyone else the price of freedom, for they’ve suffered the scars of war. We can offer them no better tribute than to protect what they have won for us.” – President Ronald Reagan, 1983
“We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.” – Francis A. Walker, 2014
“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it… it flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.” – Unknown
