Although the currently living military veterans in our country make up only about 6.7% of the United States population, their impact on our nation (and the world) is unlike any other cross section of our population or any other nation of the world.
Veterans are the pillars of our country, make no mistake. Without them there would be no United States Of America. There would be no Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness as we enjoy, though sadly most take for granted.
Veterans have, through their sacrifices, during war and peacetime protected our Constitution and the Bill Of Rights. No judge or lawyer can stake this claim, only our military veterans.
Since 1776, nearly 50 million Americans have served in the armed forced while putting their dreams and lives on hold to protect our freedom, our way of life, our flag, and the freedom of the rest of the world.
Our military veterans have shaped our policy on foreign affairs, and made the United States an advocate for democracy and justice throughout the world. Not only do they protect our rights and freedoms, our military veterans also provide medical aid, food, and water to disaster areas of the world to a level no other country in the world can even match.
Many endured hunger, pain and stress yet still fought with a purpose - willing to give the ultimate sacrifice so that their children and grandchildren can live in freedom.
