photo and unapologetic sentiments by Buck Sargent

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
-Abraham Lincoln

On this Veterans Day I'd like to take this opportunity to offer thanks to the countless Americans who came before us; who wore the uniform, charged a hill, walked a post, flew a sortie, trained a recruit or bandaged a wound.

My generation is honored to follow where your boots once tread.

If you've just read this in English, thank a veteran.

In French, thank an American.

In Japanese, Polish, Korean, Arabic, German, Dutch, Dari, Italian, Hungarian, Spanish, Pashto, Czech...

I think you get the point.
