Honoring Those Who Served

“For those who have fought for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.”

On this Veterans Day, America pauses to thank our military veterans. Among those are members of our Bearing Drift family:

-Our founder Jim Hoeft, a 20-year U.S. Navy veteran

-M.D. Russ, U. S. Army, 1973-1998

-Jay McConville, U.S. Army

-John McGlothlin, U.S. Army

Never forget.

“On this day, in this month, at this hour, our nation remembers the moment when the guns of World War I went silent.” –President George W. Bush

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” –President John F. Kennedy

“We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause.” –President Ronald Reagan

“Each of the patriots whom we remember on this day was first a beloved son or daughter, a brother or sister, or a spouse, friend, and neighbor.” –President George H.W. Bush
