This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.
But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye.
Honoring the sacrifices many have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy is the very foundation of Veterans Day.
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
America's Veterans have served their country with the belief that democracy and freedom are ideals to be upheld around the world.
A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
Freedom cannot be bestowed - it must be achieved.
The modern patriotism, the true patriotism, the only rational patriotism is loyalty to the Nation all the time, loyalty to the Government when it deserves it.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans, Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our fellow countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedoms.
In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.
Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.
I don't have to tell you how fragile this precious gift of freedom is. Every time we hear, watch, or read the news, we are reminded that liberty is a rare commodity in this world.
