THIS is the best thing I’ve read on Memorial Day ever…….What a hero, he’s so right.
May God bless all those who lost their lives fighting for this country and their grieving families….and may He bless and protect our living veterans to whom we owe SO MUCH.
I salute you. I admire you. I will never understand the courage of combat veterans. Ever. I am humbled.
Also, I wanted to mention that Turner Classic Movies had a lot of war movies on all weekend…the amount of patriotism seemed to wane as newer war films were made. The WWII films included words like “Bombardiers! We’ll give them HELL, we’ll make them YELL! BOMB! BOMB! BOMB!” “Well put out fire with FIRE!” The soundtracks often used hymns or patriotic songs like “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”… Those were the days.
(And, please, everybody; don’t buy a mattress today.)
