"Your division is one of the best, if not the best division in the history of American arms." General George S Patton 1944
Another year has passed as we honor those who gave their lives and continue to give their hearts, minds, and bodies to the cause of our great Republic. A Republic that holds with a tight grip on what some simply call a piece of paper. This piece of paper holds truths that guide the men and women, that we as free Americans allow the privilege and responsibility, by free election, to make decisions in the best interest of all American people. Men and women have given and continue to give their lives that this document, guided by the will of God, will continue to stand. To all who serve, may His grace be upon you.
