Thank You Veterans From the APS


Famed author, Bernard Malamud once wrote, "Without heroes, we are all plain people and don't know how far we can go." His comment reflects that there are individuals who make the rest of us aspire to do better. These words are particularly fitting as the United States pauses for Veterans Day to honor those who have served our nation.

On behalf of the members of the American Philatelic Society, the Board and the staff, we offer words of thanks to each man and woman who served in defense of our freedom at home and abroad. And although this is a day of honoring our veterans, we also express our thanks to the spouses and children who have supported, missed, or lost a loved one serving in our nation's military.

President Abraham Lincoln once said, "Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause."

Today, almost 22 million veterans live in the United States, some long since left active duty, others still just recently returned home. If you have a chance, please say thank you to a veteran you know today. With nearly 250,000 men and women returning home each year, you may consider inviting them to your next stamp club meeting or stamp show. For those who may be in a local veterans' hospital, a gift of stamps can be a positive hobby for those recuperating.

To all our veterans thank you for all you have done on our behalf. You are the heroes that show us how far we can go. We wish the best to you and your families on Veterans Day and throughout the year.


Your friends from the American Philatelic Society

We should also acknowledge and thank the family members of veterans. A BIG thank you to those family members; your support and love forms the foundations that allows veterans to do their jobs.

Don --

You are spot on and that's why we included the families that support our soldiers in the message. I've received quite a few notes from veterans and family members already today. Such great stories they are sharing with us.

My dad was able to go to Pearl Harbor as he served actively in WW11. He was at Iwo Jima after the battle. The pictures are horrible. He then went to the sea of Japan and waited to invade Japan. Of course T ruman had other ideas.

how fricking awesome--I always say when I'm thanked for my service also, 'and to those before me and after me also'. And I thank you all the family members of all the veterans out there-
