"Gentlemen may cry peace, peace-but there is no peace. The war has actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"

Patrick Henry
Virginia Convention
March 23, 1775
About us
Welcome to Kinston and Lenoir County

SALUTE! is a non-profit organization made up of veterans and non-veterans alike, and is open to anyone with an interest in recognizing the past and present protectors of our FREEDOM. SALUTE! is focused on promoting awareness of the FREEDOM our Great Nation has bestowed upon us, how our FREEDOM has constantly been challenged and who has paid the ultimate price by protecting our FREEDOM. Our program has no political agenda, we only want to educate our community on the history, heritage and culture of our Great Nation.

MISSION:

To honor our veterans with respect and dignity, celebrate their return to our community and publicly thank them for the sacrifices they have endured for our continued freedom.


LOGO:
  • The stenciled font of SALUTE! symbolizes the method which every service person labeled personal effects.
  • The three stripes symbolize our past and present importance in our Nations Holidays; Independence Day, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day.
  • The disk symbolizes Earth and the many theaters our service persons have been deployed.
  • The single star symbolizes the power of our nations unity.
  • The color red represents the blood of our service persons left on foreign soil.
  • The color white represents the innocence of the families at home.
  • And blue represents the color of Heaven and the somber feelings of family and friends whose loved ones never returned.
