Veterans Day in Lake County 2019

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

Lake County is home to many people who have served this great nation. Being the home to Naval Station Great Lakes, we understand just how much these sacrifices matter to protecting our freedom.

To those brave men and women who have served as a member of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines Corps or Coast Guard, we take a moment to say thank you for your service. This truly is the “land of the free, and the home of the brave.”
