Remember all of those who've sacrificed — in body, mind, and spirit — for our freedom.
 
And, for the humanitarian protection of all those around the world!
 
Let perpetual light shine upon them.

 

It's the veteran — not the preacher — who has given us freedom of religion.
 
It's the veteran — not the reporter — who has given us freedom of the press.
 
It's the veteran — not the poet — who has given us freedom of speech.
 
It's the veteran — not the campus organizer — who has given us freedom to assemble.
 
It's the veteran — not the lawyer — who has given us the right to a fair trial.
 
It's the veteran — not the politician — who has given us the right to vote.
 
It's the veteran — who salutes the flag.
 
It's the veteran — who serves under the flag.
