Our nation’s very ethos is that of freedom – a bold proclamation by our Founding Fathers, and a sentiment that we all understood would need vociferous protection.
But our original Americans, having just bested the enormous and powerful British Empire, were not afraid of sacrifice. Their cause was both true and valuable, and they understand that we could only bolster the good faith that liberty provides through a steadfast commitment to the principles of freedom.
This is where the brave men and women of the Armed Services would become a crucial part of the American experience.
These are the courageous. The bold. The first to head toward trouble as opposed to away from it. Their duty is an honorable one, and one that the nation around them celebrates at several points throughout the year.
Now, on Veteran’s Day, our country’s corporate class is doing their part as well, offering what they can to the men and women who risked it all to protect our way of life.
