This weekend many of us are enjoying the warm weather, cookouts and good times. There are also some fellow 'mates' who are spending Memorial Day in the hospital. We hope these motivational quotes from military veterans help ostomates stay strong-willed. 

General Douglas MacArthur

“It is fatal to enter a war without the will to win it.”

General Norman Schwarzkopf Jr.

“It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.”

General Colin L. Powell

“Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.”

General Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Only our individual faith in freedom can keep us free.”

Lieutenant Colonel Justin F. Blum

”Make a difference in the lives of others who do not yet share your joy.”

Today we honor the men, women and animals who died while serving in the U.S. military. It is worth more than a moment of our time to reflect on what has been sacrificed so we can enjoy our lives. Thank you for courageously protecting our freedom.
