A Veteran’s Tribute to Veterans

A Veteran’s Tribute to Veterans

http://plusquotes.com/images-veterans-day-photos-november.php Many say that they – “love freedom.” Even more, say they – “hate war!” About all, I must wonder, Have they no clue what went before? Our land that’s “known as freedom,” Was born out of war. For freedom, never has been freely given Nor sustained forever more. Those who are known as veterans […]
