For the 20 years we have been fortunate enough to be in business, we have had the pleasure of working with some of the finest men and women who serve in the Armed Forces of this country. In fact we've been privileged to have several of these terrific people join our own ranks over the years as they've retired from their military duties. Still other Veterans work closely with us as consultants and business partners. Collectively, this group of honorable individuals has never failed to inspire us with their loyalty, integrity and patriotism. These admirable qualities which are the foundation of the stalwart character of a soldier don't end when they leave the battlefield. We've seen time and time again these essential elements carry over seamlessly into their professional civilian careers. We are grateful for them and we thank them this day for their service and the characteristics which make them invaluable employees, associates and friends.
Indeed on this Veteran's Day we take pause to express our humble gratitude to all men and women who have served, or continue to serve this very moment, in the greatest Armed Forces in the world. Your sacrifice and dedication in ensuring this country's freedom is appreciated by every member of the Ashbury Team.
