What happened to our forefather's dreams?  We should not be embarrassed to be Americans. Let us take care of our Veterans and their families before all other nations.

With malice toward none; with charity for all;
with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right,
let us strive on to finish the work we are in;

to bind up the nation's wounds;
to care for him who shall have borne the battle,
and for his widow, and his orphan —
to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace,
among ourselves, and with all nations.

Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural address, 4 March, 1865


"A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards."     Theodore Roosevelt, July 4, 1903


"The willingness with which our young are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."     George Washington, 1789
