As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
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!
My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place - police, firefighters and members of our armed forces.
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.
On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.
In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul.
But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye.
Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
Thank you for the sacrifices you and your families are making. Our Vietnam Veterans have taught us that no matter what are positions may be on policy, as Americans and patriots, we must support all of our soldiers with our thoughts and our prayers.
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.
America's Veterans have served their country with the belief that democracy and freedom are ideals to be upheld around the world.
I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask: "Mother, what was war?"
When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep?
Honoring the sacrifices many have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy is the very foundation of Veterans Day.
Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death.
