Veterans Day 2020 —Will We “Keep Faith” to Veterans?

On this Veterans Day 2020, may God bless all the veterans who have served in defense of our freedom in all the wars. And may the country whose freedom they preserved honor them on Veterans Day and on every day. They kept the faith with us; and, as expressed in the haunting words of "Flanders Field," we must not "break faith" with them.
