We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. ~Edward R. Murrow

GDRNT is blessed to have several veterans and active military in our ranks as fosters, volunteers and adopters. For their service to our Country and community we are eternally grateful. Please take some time today to remember those who have and continue to serve all of us in our Military. If you have served or are currently serving our Country we thank you and your families.

Veterans Day by Roger W Hancock
We honor you, who fought for us,
for country’s sake of freedom’s plight.
You kept the greatest country great,
by sacrifice of you who served.

Honor to military, soldiers served.
There seems no risk in peace to serve.
When war breaks the silent peace,
no peace when security cease.

Sacrifice of civilian life,
careers succumb to enlist, or draft.
Families wait in fear, in prayer,
for loved ones return alive, not dead.

Returned Heroes and those deceased,
we honor, thank, though insufficient.
Parades, programs, our pride convey,
we honor you on Veterans Day.
