Some Gave All… All Gave Some…
Today is Veteran’s Day. For those who live and work in Marseilles, every day is Veteran’s Day…. The large granite slabs that line the banks of the Illinois River are engraved with the names of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country… your country.
And it hits you. These young men and women volunteered. They go months, years without seeing their families… a sacrifice not only on the brave soldiers, but also on their families. Why? Your freedom… Your safety.
Thank you Veterans, thank you to their families… for your sacrifices.
The Wall is constant reminder of what you gave, for us.
