Quotes about Veterans Day

Veterans Day usually does not get the same treatment as Memorial Day. Military veterans don’t get the full respects they deserve, unless they have made the ultimate sacrifice. In my opinion, this is unfair. I believe there is no such thing as half valor. As long as one serves his or her country valiantly, the person too deserves our full respect. Obviously, fallen heroes should be given the greatest respect but all devoted veterans are entitled to theirs as well.
