Lean Quote: America’s Veterans Serve to Uphold Democracy and Freedom

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"America's Veterans have served their country with the belief that democracy and freedom are ideals to be upheld around the world.  —  Gen. “Jimmy” Doolittle

Veterans Day is a day to honor those who served who have the fortune of coming back home.  

In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as “the Great War.”  

Commemorated in many countries as Armistice Day the following year, November 11th became a federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became legally known as Veterans Day. 

The best thing you can learn from a veteran is to appreciate where you are at this moment in life. You have the ability to determine where life takes you. Most of that freedom wouldn't be ours if it wasn't for the men and women who devote their lives to make America what it is. 

I would just like to take a moment to say thank you to all who serve to benefit our great country. Words cannot express the feeling of gratitude for the opportunities your service to protect, has provided ALL Americans. I think too many people take our country for granted. For what you have provided for us, I say Thank You, and God Bless.
