Least We Forget Our Fallen Comrades

Check out the video ” A Sad US Army Dedication” on my home page.  I came across this video on “YouTube” and I was overcome with sadness, sorrow and pride at the same time.  Having served in the Army for twenty five years and experienced Vietnam and Desert Storm.  I know what our military is going through at this very moment.  I wish everyone in the United States could actual feel the heat of day, the pain, sorrow, fear, and loneliness our military experience while at war.

War is not the flag waving and band music people think of when our military return.  It is of death, sacrifice, blood, sweat, pain, camaraderie and so much more.  For those you have served know the meaning of war.  For those who have lost loved ones, they know the meaning of war.  I wonder at times do our leaders truly know the meaning of war.

My family is a military family.  Besides myself serving, my two sons served and my son-in-law is still serving and just returned from his second tour in Iraq.  So the next time you see a veteran thank him or her for serving, because unless you have walked in their boots you have no idea what they and their families have been through.
