A Veterans Day message to ponder

On Veterans Day, we celebrate and honor our brave men and women in uniform who have selflessly fought to defend our freedoms at home and abroad.

Today (Monday, Nov. 11) is a day of remembrance and quiet reflection. It’s a day to celebrate freedom and the patriots who have fought to protect it on our behalf.

Because of their sacrifice, we continue to enjoy freedom and security at home and we are determined to preserve it for future generations.

We are forever indebted to our veterans, those who serve today, and the families who stand strong behind them for their courage and sacrifice.

As our nation’s 30th president, Calvin Coolidge once said, “The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.”

Best to you and your family,

Bob Noble,
