We at Ormond Manor would like to thank all veterans for your sacrifice to our country! You are the true heroes in our land. We honor those Airmen, Sailors, Soldiers, and Coast Guardsmen, who have served this nation in war and peace. Let us extend our heartfelt gratitude to them for their selflessness and recognize the sacrifices they have made as members of the United States Armed Forces.
