"We're The Can Do Legionnaires"


Definition of a Veteran

  A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life."

 That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no  longer understand it.
