We at the Glacier Society honor and thank all those who have served in the United States Military. We would like to thank the brave men and women that have decided to step up and accept the challenge of defending our freedom here in the United States and around the world.

Let’s all take the time to remember those that have sacrificed not being with their families, and missing holidays with loved ones to serve and protect us. Please respect and, thank our veterans on this day honoring their service. Remember, these courageous men and women risked their lives defending our nation, and deserve nothing but respect and honor.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -JFK
