"My Fellow-Countrymen - The armistice was signed this morning.  Everything for which America fought has been accomplished.  It will now be our fortunate duty to assist by example, by sober, friendly counsel and by material aid in the establishment of just democracy throughout the world." - Woodrow Wilson

On this Veteran's Day 94 years later we remember all that has been sacrificed for our freedom by all Veterans.  Thank you for your service.
