Those who serve epitomize selflessness
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – May 18, Armed Forces Day, provides the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. and our nation the opportunity to celebrate and recognize the commitment, dedication and sacrifices made by the millions of men and women who have selflessly answered the call to protect and defend our way of life.
Our freedom isn’t free, and we are ever-grateful to those willing to pay the cost. Today, and every day, we are thankful for every soldier, sailor, airman, Marine and Coast Guardsman.
While one day of thanks could never repay the debt we owe our nation’s defenders, this Armed Forces Day the VFW encourages every American to be mindful that without their courage, valor and unwavering dedication to our nation, our world would be a very different place.
