Quote of the Day

"For the last 236 years, the armed forces of the United States have been the shield of the republic. Today is a day to honor their sacrifices--but it's also a day to pray for the families of those service members. We think of them especially as we approach Thanksgiving Day and the Christmas season. It's very hard for those dedicated military families to endure the long and dangerous separations. Remember that during World War II, one in 11 Americans was in uniform. These days, only one in 200 Americans man the battlements of freedom. We are in their debt. God bless them all."
