Freedom is never free

What is Veterans Day?

President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 11, 1919 by saying, “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”

Freedom is never free

Today, on Veterans Day, we are reminded to thank all those who have served our country across countless miles, in countless battles, on countless battlefields – answering their duty without hesitation. The sacrifices they made were rewarded with the freedoms we now enjoy. No, freedom is never free. We, as the generations of Americans whose fathers and grandfathers went into battle for, must consider it our duty to uphold and honor their sacrifices.

At Masonicare, we honor our heroes daily with our ageless commitment to caring and consider it a privilege to serve those who have served.

We salute you – today and every day. Happy Veterans Day.
