Happy Veteran's Day

Whatever else you do today, take a moment to honor the brave men and women who serve our country selflessly.  Too many have paid with their lives to keep this country safe and free.  More valuable than gold, these brave soldiers are, as Walt Whitman described in his famous poem, "Our Nation's Strength:"
Not gold, but only man can make
     A people great and strong;
Men who, for truth and honor's sake,
     Stand fast and suffer long.

Brave men who work while others sleep,
     Who dare while others fly --
They build a nation's pillars deep
     And lift them to the sky.
 There are plenty of ways to thank a soldier today.   You could watch 101 reasons to love your Marine Corps:
