VETERANS DAY WEEKEND 2018! Today, we salute the service of all Veterans. And, we keep in our thoughts and prayers the fallen, the missing, and those who are currently serving and fighting in harm’s way. We also remember that honoring those who have served isn’t just about what we say here today. For many veterans, protecting our great nation’s way of life was important enough to endure long separations from their families, miss the births of their children, freeze in sub-zero temperatures, bake in deserts, lose limbs, and, far too often, lose their lives. Those who defend us from our enemies must be supported. Whether their service was in Baghdad or Bagram, we need to serve veterans as well as they serve us. While our debt to these heroes can never be repaid, our gratitude and respect must last forever. Fewer than 10 percent of Americans can claim the title “Veteran.” Less than 1 percent of our population is currently defending our freedoms. Veterans have given us freedom, security and the greatest nation on earth. We must remember them. We must appreciate them. All deserve our thanks and respect. Today and every day, reflect with pride on the service and accomplishments of our veterans. If you meet a veteran, please be certain to thank them for all they have done for all of us -- for our communities, our military, and our nation. Employers know it is smart business to hire veterans because of the skills, leadership, and discipline they bring to the work place.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY US MARINES! From their debut in 1775 when the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution creating “two Battalions of Marines be raised,” to the mountains of Afghanistan, the United States Marine Corps has earned the world’s respect as an elite and powerful fighting unit wherever put into combat. Today, Saturday, November 10, 2018 marks the Marine Corps’ 243rd birthday -- please join the men and women of the Yarmouth Police Department in wishing the Corps a Happy Birthday. If you know a Marine…please contact him or her and wish them a Happy 243rd Birthday and thank them for their service and sacrifice. Marine Corps Hymn From the Halls of Montezuma, To the Shores of Tripoli; We fight our country's battles In the air, on land, and sea; First to fight for right and freedom And to keep our honor clean; We are proud to claim the title Of UNITED STATES MARINES. Our flag's unfurled to every breeze, From dawn to setting sun; We have fought in every clime and place Where we could take a gun; In the snow of far off northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes; You will find us always on the job -- The UNITED STATES MARINES. Here's health to you and to our Corps Which we are proud to serve; In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve; If the Army and the Navy Ever look on Heaven's scenes; They will find the streets are guarded By UNITED STATES MARINES. SEMPER FIDELIS!
