On this Veteran's Day

We, at the Ligonier Valley Library, would like to salute all of our Veterans. While this day is primarily to honor those heroes who served in the military, we would also like to take a moment to thank the Veterans who wore the uniform of law enforcement and firefighter.

We thank you for giving of yourself to keep our country and our lives safe, and for enabling us to enjoy the freedoms we sometimes take for granted.

We would also extend our thanks to the families who have shared these brave heroes with us. Several of us have parents, siblings or spouses who served.

And while this day is to remember Veteran's, we encourage you to take a moment to thank those men and women who are still serving... who will hopefully one day be Veteran's themselves, safe and sound at home with their families.

We hope you will stop in the library to view the "Wall of Honor" that was put together by one of our Pennsylvania Room's dedicated volunteers. The display is in the Pennsylvania Room Hallway and will remain up through the end of November.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

It was a great ceremony. We owe so much to those who served and continue to serve.
