This is to the many men and women around the world serving this Great Country.  
 
We owe a great debt of gratitude to you.  Thank you so much for your sacrifice and dedication to keep us safe!!!
 
Many of us take everyday moments in our lives for granted.  From family dinners and bedtime stories to connecting with friends and family.  But these are the very moments that our troops and their families miss due to their commitment and service to our country.
 
This Veteran's Day, please take a moment to say thanks to our troops and their families for the sacrifices they make very day.

This Song was written in Honor of the Veterans who have sacrificed so much to serve us. Freedom is not Free. After a video interview with a veteran in the Spring of 2015 I was moved by the sacrifices and struggles the veteran faced upon returning home to regular life. "It rocked my world" I went home and wrote this song titled, "He Still Pays the Price." We ought to be grateful for our freedom because it comes at high price.

 

Here's info on the City of Aurora and Aurora Veterans Advisory Counsil Parade.

NEW VETERANS MONUMENT TO BE UNVEILED SATURDAY
Rendering of Veterans Memorial Monument
(Aurora, IL) - To commemorate Veterans Day 2015, the Aurora Veterans Advisory Council (AVAC) will unveil the new Veterans Memorial Monument during a special ceremony on Saturday, November 14 at 1:00 p.m. in the Phillips Park Sunken Memorial Garden, 1000 Ray Moses Drive.
 
The monument honors 44 Aurorans who passed away while on active duty from the Korean War to present day conflicts. The monument includes the names of the fallen etched on black polished granite flanked by bronze service emblems of all of the branches of the United States military.  
 
"What a special way to commemorate this Veterans Day," said AVAC Chairman Joe Toma. "Present and future generations can visit the garden and honor the brave Aurorans who paid the ultimate price for our freedom." 
 
After a successful capital campaign, the Aurora Veterans Advisory Council raised the necessary funds to design, construct and install the monument alongside Aurora's World War I and World War II monuments in the beautiful Phillips Park Sunken Garden.
 
The Dunham Fund provided $50,000 with other donations coming from the community including individuals, veteran service clubs and the Grand Victoria Riverboat Fund.
 
"The Dunham Fund is proud to partner with other community organizations to honor our veterans who have made the ultimate sacrifice so we can live in a safer world," said Dunham Fund Executive Director Robert Vaughan. 
 
The public is invited to join Aurora's Gold Star Families for this historic unveiling ceremony.
