Members in the Military

Honoring Those Who Served and Sacrificed to Protect Our Freedom

"A Veteran takes an oath to serve in the United States Armed Forces. The soldier’s creed is I stand ready to deploy, engage and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat. I am a guardian of freedom in the American way of life

A Veteran knows loyalty, duty, selfless service, integrity and personal courage. A Veteran puts the welfare of others before their own. A Veteran knows fear and danger. A Veteran knows physical courage and enduring physical distress and risking personal safety. A Veteran never leaves a fallen comrade

A Veteran supports and defends the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. A Veteran takes an oath before God to defend and protect our freedom and our liberty surrendering, if necessary, their life. "

--Bob Estes, Arkansas Bar Association 124th President and Vietnam Veteran
