Brotherhood In Arms
Most Holidays have a meaning, but to us at LRS among the most honored holidays is Veterans day. A day sacred to us because of what it means to each red blooded American who has or is serving in the Armed forces and even more so for those who have lost a brother. The day is sacred because it stands for a brother who gave up his life on the field of battle or in the air over the heads of our enemies.
A WISE MAN ONCE SAID....
"Greater love hath no man than he that layeth down his life for his friends "
Even if you are not a religious person, those words have never struck a more true chord because they represent the quintessential meaning of Veterans Day. For those who have been down range they know the truth. Very few men fight for their country, many more fight for the brother beside them. The fact that their brother bears the same flag they do, or the fact that they have each others back means more than a land, more than a government, and even more than loved ones far away. In the moment that a man fights, he fights for his brothers.
This Veterans day we pay homage to all the brothers who have kept us safe and out of harms way, to those who came before us and paved the path upon which we walk our daily lives. Today is the day we dedicate to their remembrance. It is our hope that you will spend the day thinking of your brothers and what they have done for all of us.
Not many soldiers stay in the service because they like the job, They stay because they love their BROTHERS!
THANK YOU BROTHER
An LRS customer sent us this photo which we feel completely encapsulates the spirit of this day.
We were so struck by its meaning that we will share it here in hopes that it will help others understand what today is really all about.
IN NUMBERS HERE ARE THOSE THAT PAID THE PRICE FOR OUR WAY OF LIFE
