The Value of Veterans

"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their country."

- President George Washington

Powerful quote! SO very true!

Great-Grandfather served in WW1, Grandfather WW2 and my Father served in Vietnam...and when I think about it (like I am right now) my heart breaks knowing how my Father(and MANY MANY returning soldiers) was treated when he came home.
