Veterans Day 2022

Today we honor all those men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces and served our nation by defending all that we hold dear. Our family has been blessed by two members who served with distinction–my father, George “Red” Stahley, a WW II Navy veteran and my sister, Maryellen Stahley Brown, who served as an officer and a nurse in the US Army. We are so proud and grateful for their service to our country.

To all our Veterans we offer our heartfelt gratitude, our deep respect, and our continued admiration.

And on this Veterans Day in America, I want to highlight the enormous courage and determined spirit of the armed forces of Ukraine. These women and men are demonstrating to all the world what it means to stand strong for freedom and the preservation of democracy. The fighting now going on in Ukraine parallels the fierce fighting that occurred in Europe during the most intense days of WWII. We salute the intrepid spirit of the Ukrainian fighters who remind of daily what it was like for our parents and grandparents during the darkest days of WWII.

May God’s rich blessings be upon all Veterans, living and deceased, who represent the very best of us all.
