“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.” - President Ronald Reagan, 1983. I think this quote, by Ronald Reagan, not only speaks for marines but for all veterans who have served their people and made sacrifices to protect the rights of those people. I am proud and take great pride to be living in a country protected by such courageous men and women who have served to make a positive difference in our country. When someone risks their own life for the betterment of others, it is a very noble act that requires immense bravery and courage.
A veteran is a person who has served our country but has now retired. They have fought to keep our country safe, risked their lives for us, and have died for us. They have honored our country, so why not honor them to. I honor veterans by saying the pledge of Allegiance every morning, giving donations, remembering veterans day, saying thank you whenever I see a veteran and by listening to their story’s when I talk to them. I think honoring veterans is so important because they have done so much for us.
What I also really liked about this speech was that It gave me a scene of respect for all those who have ever fought for our great country. I love America and am grateful for all that I have. I have always been grateful for what soldiers do, but now I realize how harsh war is. How scared and tired they must be. They are so brave to leave their homes, families and all that they have and risk their lives for the rest of The U.S.
He inspired me to be positive in my own life while carrying great integrity. Steve brought passion to everything he did and was a true friend to many. He was never afraid to lend a helping hand to someone. I strive to help people without expecting anything back in return because it creates a person who can lead. When he was faced with health struggles he kept fighting to be a good person to all.
It is such an honor to write a report about it as it affects so many people. The flag is an inspiration to United States’ citizens because it represents unity, purity, and justice. This is key to a successful nation and its people. The flag also brings hope and courage to all. When you look at the flag all you may see is a piece of fabric that seems to be everywhere.
Likewise, it can be reasoned that servicemen and women represent the military community and its values: the work that they do bears upon the image of the United States Military. In addition, the U.S. Military does virtuous work through the serviceman and woman, which I am grateful for: protection and freedom. With this, when I honor the service of the individual American Hero, I honor the community responsible for training each male and female soldier superiorly and whole-heartedly. In respecting the U.S Military for its training, the entire military family is revered for their courageous service and sacrifice to America. In Mr. Mark Forester’s case, I honor him by honoring those who belong to and represent the family and the community that he also belongs to and
"Our flag honors those who have fought to protect it, and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation's founders and heroes. As the ultimate icon of America's storied history, the Stars and Stripes represents the very best of this nation. " This is a quote from Congressman Joe Barton. To me this quote summarizes why flag protection is important, because the flag represents several things. Firstly and most importantly the Flag represents those that have govern their lives and sacrificed so much to ensure that the flag can fly to represent the continued freedom through the past, present, and future of the United States of America.
The American flag is revered in the armed forces. Soldiers going into harm’s way that have worn, and continue to wear, the American flag on their uniforms. This shows that the soldiers have respect and they are proud to be an American citizen. Being in the service and fighting for what one believes in is amazing. They sacrifice their lives everyday for us, in order to protect and keep our nation safe.
As an American I feel that ALL things are possible if you Believe , And for that I Believe that America is not just MY home, but OURS Veterans, Veterans are the men and women who have fought and served in the army in order to honor and protect our country. As these individuals boldly practiced their beliefs in freedom, they inadvertently rewrote history, and we as Americans, honor these patriots who were willing to give the ultimate sacrifice. Veterans Day is the day that we set aside to honor those who served our country. Being a member of the United States Army is a job that must be upheld by the men and women who chose to answer the call of duty. All that you have learned in Basic Training, Advanced Individual Training, and Permit
Our flag stands for freedom because of all the lives that had to be lost throughout history for us to become what we are. By saying the Pledge of Allegiance every morning , I feel blessed with a constant reminder that you will always have to love each other, respect

For his contributions, Sinise has been recognized on multiple occasions--including being the recipient of the Presidential Citizens Medal. One of Sinise’s strongest initiatives has been for a memorial to the millions of disabled veterans in America.
