President George Washington said it so clearly when he spoke of the mettle of a country and the willingness of its citizens to serve in defense of country being dependent on the treatment of its veterans and families.

We urge every citizen to come to our services and join us in honoring and praying for all of our active and retired comrades and their families, and demanding they be properly equipped and supported in their missions and when they come home and need follow up care.
