Thanks For Your Service Quotes



Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.



On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.



Who kept the faith and fought the fight; the glory theirs, the duty ours.



This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.



We don't know them all, but we owe them all.



May the sun in his course visit no land more free, more happy, more lovely, than this our own country!



Here men endured that a nation might live.



The brave die never, though they sleep in dust, their courage nerves a thousand living men



I have long believed that sacrifice is the pinnacle of patriotism.



Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.
