Veteran's Daygreenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread
Today is Veteran' Day. I hope everyone takes the chance to thank those people who have worked so hard to ensure the freedom of the entire world. Even if you do not always agree with the policy, you can still have respect and admiration for those who willingly put their lives in jeopardy to protect our people. I have heard stories from many Veterans that are just heart-breaking, and many never recover fully from the experiences they have faced. Thanks to all!

Melissa -- some of the stories you hear DO break your heart, don't they? I mean, no one should live the way some veterans do, least of all men and women who fought for our freedom. The lack of respect we show our elderly, much less those who risked (and gave) all for OUR sakes...it's really mind-blowing.
In these times, especially, it brings it home to you all the more the dire consequences of losing our humanity as a society. People should always come first, not money or material things. Reminders come in many ways.
I don't know if there are many veterans on this board. I would like to say, though, to any who are: thank you. I doubt you hear it often, but what you did matters, and I am grateful for my sake and the sake of my children that you answered the call when it came.
