Salute To Women
Throughout our century of wars, we have rightfully paid homage, and erected monuments to our veterans commemorating their heroic deeds and sacrifices. Today, we recognize and pay homage, and salute our women; our mothers, wives, daughters and sisters who unselfishly nurtured and nursed their veterans and supported their men by entering the factories, shops, and mills thereby turning America into "the arsenal of democracy," so vital and necessary for final victory; while simultaneously "keeping the home fires burning"patiently and silently awaiting the return of their beloved sons, husbands and brothers - alive or dead.
They sacrificed their men to the horrors of war? they suffered and shed tears in silence? without expectation of recognition, monuments, awards, or medals. They are the true heroines of the century of war? today your veterans salute you.
