VETERANS CORNER

They say “Old soldiers never die,” and this may be true. For there is a place reserved for them in the history of our country. Many will remain nameless, but on special days of the year, a grateful nation will pause to honor them. To those who took the risks and paid the price, and to those who took the risks and returned to build the greatest nation on earth, we proudly salute you.

To the men and women who have served our country, consider this your corner to tell your story. As General Douglas MacArthur said, “I speak for the silent lips, forever stilled, in the jungles, on the beaches and in the deep waters of the Pacific that marked their way.”

IT’S TIME TO TELL YOUR STORY

Contact us with your story. Let your family and friends read where you were and what you did while serving your country.

D-Day Remembered

Posted on 04 June 2011

To those of you born into the greatest generation of our time, you know the game Monopoly as the family entertainment of its era.  But what you may not know is that, strangely enough, this game was used to help the Allied Forces win World War II. In 1941, after being shot down and captured, […]

Many nations have had their defining moments in time; history recalls their distinctions.  America’s moment began with the signing of the Declaration of Independence and reached its peak with World War II.  This global conflict inspired our country to rise to the occasion, despite its not being prepared at the onset of the war.  To […]

A Few Good Men

Posted on 23 February 2011

With all the troubles in this world causing such doom and gloom in so many countries, and echoed by the media, one has to stop and wonder what the future holds for this planet.  Its Creator had a vision of “peace on earth, good will towards men.”  But that all flew out the window when […]

A Patriotic Moment

Posted on 13 January 2011

Sometimes, patriotism and humanity are displayed spontaneously – creating a warm and fuzzy feeling for those witnessing it.  That’s just what happened last Friday as 8-year old Elizabeth Hughes sang the National Anthem at an American Hockey League game between the Norfolk Admirals (a Tampa Bay Lightning affiliate) and the Connecticut Whale (a New York Rangers affiliate).  Check […]
