November 11th is our holiday! It is a day dedicated to honor and thank individuals from all generations who accepted the challenge to serve in the armed forces of our great country. While many who served are still with us, there are others - comrades, colleagues, and predecessors - who have left. Many of those gave what Abraham Lincoln called "the last full measure of devotion” to our nation. For those and other reasons, it is fitting that we have a day dedicated to recognizing veterans.
I am honored and humbled to be the leader of an organization comprised of Individuals whose courage and commitment is unsurpassed. Moreover, your passion for service to others is evident every day in what you do as a member of the VFW. It is because of you and what you do that I can readily say: GEORGIA STANDS TALL!
Take a few moments on this day for yourselves and enjoy your day. You earned the right to do so! Thank you for your service and your sacrifices!
