15 Veteran Quotes That Will Inspire You


Veterans Day is a day to honor those who have served our country.

It’s a reflection of all the men and women who have served our great nation because of purpose, pride and freedom. We have had dozens of great veterans on the TNQ Podcast, here is a “highlight reel” of some of the inspirational quotes from a few of our guests.

This Veterans Day, we encourage you to reflect on the freedoms you have because you live in the greatest nation on the planet. It’s because of our Veterans that we are all afforded the opportunities that America has to offer. We must support our active duty who are defending us now and remember and take care of them as they return home and transition back to civilian life.
