Where would this country, or the world for that matter, be without the dedication and services of those young men and women we call American veterans? Throughout history, our nation has turned to our military to protect others so that we may enjoy the freedoms that we cherish today. These brave men and women were not making decisions about the right or wrong of war; they were following orders and doing what they were told.
We owe so much to these veterans whose sacrifices cannot be captured in a few words, who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country, who carry scars that remain for the rest of their lives.
It is our privilege to escort WWII, Korean, and Vietnam Veterans as well as chronically/terminally ill Veterans from all eras of service to visit their Memorials in Washington, DC.
