The land of the free and the home of the brave. While there are myriad reasons why America is able to lay claim to such a noble and enduring affirmation, few of those reasons rise above the role our nation’s military plays in securing our freedom.
Today, Veterans Day, we celebrate those who have gallantly and selflessly fought for and defended our country, whether during war or peace. Each year on November 11, America takes the time to say “thank you” and display proper respect and honor for the many men and women who have served so faithfully in the U.S. armed services.
We do not take their service lightly; they are indeed the wind beneath our wings. And on this day, we say to all veterans: We salute you.
In the spirit of Veterans Day, we are recognizing members of our DHEC team who have served in the military. View our “Veterans Day 2016 — Career of Service” photo album created in their honor.
