Today is Memorial Day in this country. A time to think back and pay service to those who served and gave their lives so we may live this life, here, in America. So many brave men and women who gave their lives. So much of our youth, our children who chose to defend this country and the world from dictators and tyranny. They deserve more than a day. They earned and deserve our undying respect and loyalty. They did while others talked. They served while others feasted. They died while some denied or even laughed.
There are still over 1500 American soldiers listed as “missing” in Viet Nam.7600 American soldiers have that same status in Korea and better than 76,000 Americans are still unaccounted for who served in WWII.
Take a minute today. Hit your knees and thank them. All of them. They died. And they deserve no less than your gratitude. They never asked for it though.
