Veteran’s Day – 2012

Veteran's Day - 2012

(U.S. Air Force graphic/Corey Parrish)

On Veterans Day,  the world stops in silence to pay tribute to the heroes of the battlefield who never see themselves as heroes.  To that, we believe we owe veterans more than our silence, our memories, our thanks.

The brave actions of our veterans endure in the pages of history.  On Veteran’s Day, we not only remember their gallantry on the battlefield; we also look at the lasting legacy of strength and service they brought with them when they returned home.

But these Troops – our veterans – don’t see themselves as being brave or special, they just say they’re doing their jobs.

Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, almost three million American men and women have answered our nation’s call to arms – to serve their nation and do their job.

In the last 11 years, more than 15,000 Kentucky men and women, Soldiers and Airmen, have deployed–permanently writing on our nation’s scroll and showing their “Unbridled Service”.

On this Veteran’s Day, 2012, the Kentucky National Guard pauses to say “Thank you” to all veterans; all those out of uniform and to those still serving our great country today.
