It has been said a "Veteran" is a man or woman, whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve- is someone who at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount " up to , and including his or her life".
What a powerful statement. A statement that is so true about our United States military men and women. The American soldier will go anywhere they are asked, will do anything they are asked to do, and if necessary will lay their life on the line for their fellow man and country. Whether they were drafted or they volunteered, the American Veteran accomplished the duty they were asked to do for a country they so dearly love. A duty they performed every day with the ultimate goal of keeping this country free.
If you get a chance today, take a small amount of time and thank a veteran. A simple thank you can be more powerful than any medal or award. With that being said the Village of Greenview would to thank all that have served or are presently serving. Your sacrifice and dedication are greatly appreciated.
HAVE A GREAT VETERANS DAY!!!
