Message from the Director: Honoring Veterans Across America

Each year on November 11th we recognize Veterans Day to honor all the men and women who’ve served our country in uniform.  We honor and celebrate veterans from generations past and present.  It’s a time for reflection and recognition of all those who have served and sacrificed. Many, many patriots have given their lives so we may continue to enjoy freedom and prosperity and a homeland where we are free to worship any religion or none at all!  On Memorial Day all Americans unite in solemn recognition of the liberties that have been earned by the efforts and sacrifices of others.
