"Courage is almost a contradiction in terms.
It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die."
-- G. K. Chesterton
Today we honor those who have served the cause of freedom in many wars and many places. There is a price to our freedom which so many of us can hardly imagine. Thank you to all those who have served, and are serving, our country!
