America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.
America's veterans embody the ideals upon which America was founded more than 229 years ago.
From the world wars of Europe to the jungles of the Far East, from the deserts of the Middle East to the African continent, and even here in our own hemisphere, our veterans have made the world a better place and America the great country we are today.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
Only in America can someone start with nothing and achieve the American Dream. That's the greatness of this country.
